Grade Crossings Hearing Set

FRA has proposed that the 10 states with the highest average number of collisions in the past three years at highway-rail grade crossings, such as California and Texas, develop action plans. A Feb. 22 public hearing in Washington, D.C., will give stakeholders more input.

The Federal Railroad Administration announced a public hearing on Feb. 22 in Washington, D.C., and an extended comment period on its proposed requirement that the 10 states with the most highway-rail grade crossing collisions, on average, in the past three years develop grade crossing action plans.

The public hearing will take place at the Washington Plaza Hotel, located at Ten Thomas Circle. Comments are now due by Feb. 8.

California, Illinois, Florida, and Texas are among the states with a high number of collisions that would have to prepare plans.

The proposed rule's docket is available at (Docket No. FRA-2009-0032).
