MONTREAL – Canadian Transportation Minister Marc Garneau announced Wednesday that the federal government will spend $41 million on grade crossing improvements across the country. The money will improve the lights and signage at more than 380 grade crossings in Canada.

The Globe and Mail reports that 46 people died in grade-crossing collisions and other incidents along Canada's railways in 2015.

The federal money will be spent over three years. It will also be used to increase community outreach and education by talking to the public about the dangers of railroad crossings.
