Short-Line Railroad Improvement Program (SLRIP)

The Short-Line Infrastructure Improvement Act of 2019, (Senate Bill [SB] 87, Statutes of 2019) created the Short-Line Railroad Improvement Program (SLRIP) and provides a one-time appropriation, of seven million two hundred thousand dollars ($7,200,000), for the purposes of this program. Program funds are to be allocated by the California Transportation Commission (Commission) to short-line railroad infrastructure projects intended to improve freight mobility, volume thresholds, and support modern rail freight traffic and the communities and industries they serve throughout California.

The Commission is currently developing the SLRIP competitive program guidelines in cooperation with the California State Transportation Agency, Caltrans, RTPAs, Class III rail industry representatives, and other transportation stakeholders.
