NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON RAILROAD-HIGHWAY CROSSING SAFETY
This conference, the fifth in a series, was held to demonstrate how each of the partners in grade crossing improvement programs is using or can best use techniques and new funding in a cooperative effort to implement an effective grade crossing improvement program. Intensified interest on the federal level is exemplified by the 1973 Federal Highway Act, the National Grade Crossing Inventory and Numbering Project now in progress, and the new FRA requirements for the reporting of grade crossing incidents. Urban railroad relocation is shown to offer the potential for combining several kinds of benefits from one project: improved highway safety and mobility, improved environment, improved land use, and improved railroad efficiency. Several papers review on-going and recently completed railroad-highway safety research and development projects.
