THE BIG BREAKTHROUGH IN GRADE-CROSSING IMPROVEMENT

The Federal Highway Act of 1973, for the first time in history, authorized the use of Federal Funds for defraying the entire cost of projects designed to eliminate safety hazards at intersections of railways and highways at grade. Betterment of the crossing surfaces is included. In these pages RT&S editors first summarize the essential points of the legislation, particularly those that serve as guide lines on how the money is to be spent. This is followed by a comprehensive report on the "state of the art" in grade-crossing surfaces, and a showcase of the latest developments in this area.
