RAIL-HIGHWAY GRADE CROSSING PROGRAM--A STATE'S VIEW
Rail-highway grade crossing safety programs are being approached in many states on a broad basis. There is some evidence that rather than merely installing more active protection devices it may be more appropriate to upgrade existing devices using equipment that will make the flashing lights and/or gates more creditable. Removing or paving over abandoned or unused crossings are also proposed as cost-effective actions.
