Canadian government earmarks more than $11 million for crossing improvements


Earlier this week, the Canadian government announced it will provide more than $11.4 million to help fund safety improvements at 115 grade crossings nationwide.

Allocated through Transport Canada’s grade crossing improvement program, the funds will offset up to 80 percent of the costs to install flashing lights and gates, link crossing signals to nearby traffic lights, modify operating circuits, or install new circuits or timing devices.

During the past decade, the program has provided more than $100 million for crossing improvements.
