A project to raise flood-prone railroad tracks in the Devils Lake region has been put on the fast track by the federal government.

The project is among four transportation projects that President Barack Obama said would be expedited to improve aging transportation infrastructure. The 100 million dollar project will raise about 15 miles of track.

The White House says federal reviews will be done over the winter and construction is expected next summer.
