On June 26, 2024, the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) awarded this project a Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) grant for approximately $18.8 million. The RAISE Grant program is highly competitive with more than 1,000 applications submitted from around the country to the USDOT each year. With this RAISE grant, Lake County has now secured more than $31 million in federal funding, which is the maximum allowable federal share of the estimated $42 million construction costs. Lake County, the Village of Round Lake, and Metra will all be contributing funding to the project as well.
