FY 2015 Local Rail/Highway Grade Crossing Safety Program funding opportunity
The Department is requesting submittal of applications for the Fiscal Year 2015 Local Rail / Highway Grade Crossing Safety Program. An application form for the project funding through this program is attached. Also, an electronic version of this form is available at http://www.dot.il.gov/blr/blrforms.html. (Click on Form BLR 04100 in the table of forms.)
The Department is continuing to place a stronger emphasis on signal and circuitry related projects as opposed to crossing surface projects. Additional emphasis is being placed on locations with an increased number of trains or vehicles, and at locations having a crash history. Signal related projects are eligible for 100 percent federal funding.
Please submit applications to the Department by August 15, 2014. If you have questions, please contact Jason L. Johnson at (217) 557-1399. Please click here to read the entire circulation letter.
