STATE OF THE ART ON RAILROAD-HIGHWAY GRADE CROSSING SURFACES
An attempt is made to provide a summary of the latest available information on physical characteristics, riding quality, and relative costs of the various types of surfacing materials used at railroad-highway grade crossings. The crossing surface types considered are: bituminous, full wood plant, sectional treated timber, concrete slab, concrete pavement, steel-reinforced rubber panels, metal sections, and unconsolidated. Emphasis is given to the nesessity for proper preparation of the track structure and good drainage of the subgrade.
