GRADE CROSSINGS: THE CLOSURE OPTION

Grade crossing closure is the least-used method of improving safety and simultaneously reduces maintenance both for track and signal equipment.

The regulatory and legal aspects of such a procedure are discussed, along with the impact of Federal assistance for grade crossing protection.
