South Florida Railroad Crossing Safety Project-Tiger 2016 Application
MARLIN developed and submitted a TIGER Grant application for the South Florida Railroad Crossing Safety project. This grant was proposed to greatly enhance the safety of the South Florida Rail Corridor (SFRC) in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties, through the implementation of a clearly delineated and monitored Dynamic Envelope Zone (DEZ) at all major crossings in the corridor.
The corridor already has 4 locations with DEZ implementation and this grant would accelerate the overall program objectives to a total of 26 crossings across 3 counties and immediately elevate awareness and visibility of rail crossing safety over the entire region. The corridor is entirely within the Miami Urbanized Area that includes Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties and is eligible for up to 80% TIGER funding.
