The US has approved more
than $291m in grants through the Federal-State Partnership for State of Good Repair programme to improve the rail infrastructure in the country.

The amount will be allocated to 11 intercity passenger rail projects in nine states.

The US Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) will award $145m for two bridge replacement programmes in Connecticut while the Pacific Surfliner Corridor Rehabilitation and Service Reliability project in California will receive more than $31m.

Additionally, the San Diego Next Generation Signaling and Grade Crossing Modernization project in California and Worcester Union Station improvement works in Massachusetts will respectively receive around $9m and $29m.

The government has allocated more than $18m for Trenton Transit Center Station Improvements in New Jersey, more than $15m for Harrisburg Line Signal System Renewal in Pennsylvania and around $14m for Newington Road Bridge Replacement in Virginia.

The remaining amount was awarded to projects in Maryland, Michigan and New York.

FRA administrator Ronald Batory said: “This Administration has invested billions in railroad infrastructure to ensure the safe movement of passengers and goods throughout our nation.

“These investments have proven vital during this challenging year and kept essential supplies moving throughout our nation, and these State of Good Repair grants will continue those improvements and enhance passenger rail service to ready the nation for the forthcoming recovery.”

Separately, the US Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announced a $354.6m grant for the West Lake Corridor Project in Indiana.

The project involves building a 7.8-mile southern extension of the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District’s (NICTD) existing South Shore Line (SSL) commuter rail service. The extension will include four stations.
