Pennsylvania receives nearly $9 million for railroad projects

(The Center Square) – The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) is sending up to $900,000 to the Delaware-Lackawanna Railroad Co. and more than $7.8 million to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (DOT) for railroad projects.

For the Delaware-Lackawanna, the project will improve four components at the railroad’s Green Ridge Yard and at its junction with Norfolk Southern Railway at Hyde Park in Scranton.

For the state, the DOT will develop an onboard GPS sensor system to provide real-time information on railcar movements and conditions to shippers, car owners and railroads.

The money is from the $320.6 million Consolidated Rail Infrastructure and Safety Improvements (CRISI) Program.
