In addition to the grant funding, the City of Phoenix will provide a 30 percent match toward the projects.<br></p> <p>Improvements to be made to these two complex and heavily trafficked railroad crossings will include installation of gate arms, signalization and increased sidewalk width for Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance, as well as minor road upgrades including realignment of traffic signals and widening. Both crossings currently are not protected by gate arms, just cantilevered signals.</p> <p>The money for these projects comes from the more than $368 million in CRISI grant funds allocated by the U.S. Department of Transportation this week to address 46 projects in 32 states. These investments will play a crucial role in modernizing the nation's rail infrastructure and strengthening supply chains, and help to reduce congestion and get people and goods where they need to go quickly and more affordably.<br></p><p>CRISI funds projects that improve safety and railroad infrastructure, reduce congestion, relocate rail lines, conduct rail-related research, and enhance multi-modal connnections between rail and other modes of transport such as ports or intermodal facilities. <br></p> <p> <a href="https://www.transportation.gov/briefing-room/biden-administration-announces-over-368-million-grants-improve-rail-infrastructure" target="_blank">Read the full U.S. Department of Transportation Department CRISI grant program funds announcement</a> <br> </p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/streetsNewsstreet-transportation
