FRA Names Railroad Crossings with Most Incidents Over Last Decade

Phoenix and Glendale, Ariz., crossings are at the top of the list, which is part of a continued focus on reducing fatalities at railroad crossings.

The Federal Railroad Administration released a list detailing 15 railroad crossings throughout the country where 10 or more incidents have occurred in the last decade, and it's notable that crossings in Phoenix and Glendale, Ariz., dominate it. The list included a letter from FRA Administrator Sarah E. Feinberg urging increased cooperation to improve safety at crossings.

"Knowing where repeat injuries and fatalities occur helps states focus their time and resources on areas where they can have an impact," said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. "Preventing incidents and fatalities at railroad crossings is one of the department's top priorities, and I urge states to work with FRA to achieve this life-saving goal."

It’s important to note that fatalities have not occurred at all 15 crossings, but the FRA did note that the potential for injuries and loss of life is significant due to repeated incidents.

Many of the crossings listed are busy, multiple-lane intersections in busy neighborhoods with significant traffic from trucks.
