Columbus – Governor Mike DeWine announced $100 million in funding to help communities eliminate dangerous railroad crossings.

Railroad crossings are a safety hazard and an obstacle to traffic, including emergency vehicles. Since the Federal Railroad Administration began collecting restricted crossing data in late 2019, more than 10,500 reports of restricted crossings have been submitted in Ohio.
Municipalities can submit rail crossing removal projects to the Ohio Railroad Development Commission, which will determine which projects have the best chances for federal funding and help develop these sites into competitive federal grant applications.
