The Railroad Grade Separation program, announced by Gov. Taft
in February, will allocate $200 million, over a 10-year period.
The program will provide railroad grade separations for
communities most affected by increased train traffic as a result
of the recent acquisition of Conrail by the Norfolk Southern
Corporation and CSX Transportation.
