SEPTA Gets Grant for Grade Crossing Work

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority has received a $15 million grant for grade crossing work in Philadelphia on its commuter rail lines.

The grant was among the $59 million in grants awarded by the Federal Highway Administration’s Commuter Authority Rail Safety Improvement program.

SEPTA will use the grant to install gates and upgrade pavement markings at 22 crossings in Philadelphia and in Bucks, Delaware and Montgomery Counties on its regional commuter rail system which shares significant trackage with freight carriers.
