FOOT-DRAGGING AT THE CROSSINGS?
Despite the availability of federal-aid funds for grade crossing protection and surfacing, there have been institutional and legal constraints that have delayed the use of the funding. Federal Highway Administration cites slowness on the part of both the states and railroads. The experiences of five states, as collected in a report for FRA, are discussed. AAR is taking a growing role in promoting use of the federal money and railway suppliers have been conducting workshops.
