MORE MONEY FOR CROSSING PROTECTION?
An interview with Patrick J. McCue, executive director of AAR'S Highway-Rail Programs, explains the implications of the funding of the 1975 Federal Highway Act for elimination of grade crossing hazards. Over 3 1/3 years, an inventory has identified 402,000 rail crossings of Federal and non- Federal-aid public roads, private crossings, pedestrian crossing and grade-separated crossings which is now incorporated in FRA's information center files. The $175 million for grade-crossing projects on Federal-aid and other roads should permit automatic warning devices on 10,000 crossings over a 27 month period.
