If it is determined by the department that a railroad crossing safety project involving federal funds will result in ascertainable benefits to the railroad such railroad may be required to provide up to five percent of the total cost of the project. The balance of any matching funds needed shall be paid by the department from the Grade Crossing Protection Fund.
