ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF GRADE CROSSING IMPROVEMENTS

A Rail-Highway Crossing Study was initiated by the Chicago Transportation Study in 1972. The project goal was to develop an analytical tool which could identify optimal capital investments for improvements to the 3,100 at-grade crossings, and replacements of the 2,000 grade-separated crossings within the region. Using the analytical results, the project set regional priorities for feasible improvements to, and replacements of, rail-highway crossings.
