Indiana DOT seeks applicants for rail-crossing improvement grants


The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is accepting applications for the Local Trax matching grant program for grade crossing separations, closures and other safety enhancements at railroad intersections with local roads.

The program will provide at least $125 million in state matching funds for communities interested in pursuing high-priority projects. Applications will be accepted through Aug. 31, INDOT officials said in a press release.

Project awards are expected to be announced in late summer. Local Trax requires local governments to provide 20 percent of funding for land acquisition and construction. The state will provide the remaining 80 percent.

The Indiana government website provides information on how to apply for the grants.
