Title FRA Awards $25 Million in Grants for Positive Control Implementation
Date Posted 8/23/2016
Description On August 16, 2016, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) awarded $25 million in grants for 11 projects in six states and the District of Columbia to assist in implementing Positive Train Control (PTC). Many awards will help railroads achieve interoperability among the different PTC systems that railroads are deploying. PTC systems are designed to prevent certain train-to-train collisions, over-speed derailments, incursions into established work zone limits, and trains going to the wrong tracks due to improper switching.
