The state of Vermont is in line to get more than $4.2 million in federal highway grant money.

U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced Wednesday that the funding will pay for numerous highway-related projects, ranging from protecting rail crossings to transportation job training.

In June, the Federal Highway Administration invited states to apply for funding from 14 grant programs, leading to requests that totaled almost $13 billion – more than 30 times the funds available.

Vermont got $2.2 million for installing active protection at 15 unprotected crossings on Amtrak’s Vermonter route, $1 million for work on U.S. Route 4A and Vermont 30 in Castleton, $352,000 to improve access at the St. Johnsbury Waypoint and $326,000 to support a Chittenden County travel demand management pilot program, among other things.
