NORTHEAST CORRIDOR HIGH SPEED RAIL PASSENGER SERVICE IMPROVEMENT PROJECT. TASK 10S. GRADE CROSSINGS AND FENCING, WASHINGTON, D.C. TO NEW HAVEN

The report identifies the status of the current program for the elimination, separation, or other complete protection of all grade crossings along the Northeast Corridor (NEC) from Washington, D.C. to New Haven, Connecticut, and develops an overall plan for the completion of fencing of the railroad right-of-way. The plan includes fencing of overpasses and provides cost and schedule information. State grade crossings separation programs were evaluated with respect to the state's projected construction schedules to determine the impact on the overall NEC project. The benefits resulting from grade separation include both safety benefits and non-safety benefits. Typical guide specification for standard chain link fence was developed for immediate and future requirements and is included as an appendix.
