Tennessee to Receive Millions for Tennessee Short Line Railroads Bridge Bundle Project

The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) announced Monday that it has invested more than $1.4 billion from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law into 70 rail improvement projects in 35 states and Washington, D.C.

In Tennessee, the Tennessee Short Line Railroads Bridge Bundle Project will put more than $23.7 million to work upgrading approximately 42 bridges along 10 different short-line railroads that need immediate, extensive repair or replacement. The impacted bridges are located throughout the state, and their upgrades will strengthen the short-line rail network and improve operational efficiency.
