Dot Awards $1.8b in Transportation Infrastructure Grants

Nearly 150 rail, road, transit and port projects will receive grant funds this year from the Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity, or RAISE, program.

According to Construction Dive, The U.S. DOT says on a web page that the RAISE program uses “a rigorous merit-based process to select projects with exceptional benefits, explore ways to deliver projects faster and save on construction costs, and make needed investments in our Nation’s infrastructure.”

The program receives $1.5 billion a year from the 2021 Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act along with additional congressional appropriations. It is the current iteration of three national infrastructure investment programs.

In Santa Ana, California, a grade separation project will get $25 million to reconstruct an existing railroad crossing adjacent to the Santa Ana Regional Transportation Center, an Amtrak and Metrolink commuter rail station that also serves local and intercity buses. The project includes protected bikeways, sidewalks and a pedestrian overcrossing.
