Hilliard Rome Road Grade Separation Project

The  City of Columbus is requesting $26.6 million for the Hilliard Rome Road Grade Separation Project from the United States Department of Transportation’s (USDOT) Consolidated Rail Infrastructure and Safety Improvements (CRISI) Grant Program.  The project will separate the existing at-grade railroad crossing on Hilliard Rome Road by extending Galloway Road and constructing a new separated railroad crossing over the existing railroad tracks.  The results of this project will separate a hazardous at-grade railroad crossing, improve transportation insecurity in the surrounding communities, and extend the impact and benefit of federal and local investments in the LinkUS West Broad Street Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor.  This application leverages a $3.3 million award from the Ohio Rail Crossing Elimination Program, administered by the Ohio rail Development Commission.
