The training provides information on rail-highway crossings, grade crossing components, including program/project development and administration. Workshops will provide the participants a chance to make hands-on applications of the training material, which
include such topics as historical background, railroad-highway intersection definition and components, collection and maintenance of data, assessment of crossing safety and operations, identification and selection of alternate improvements, program and project
development and implementation, maintenance, and other topics (i.e., private crossings, operation lifesaver).
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Describe Active and Passive Devices used in connection with at-grade crossings
- Identify techniques and engineering principles used for at-grade crossings
- Appraise existing at-grade crossings
- Develop alternate methods to improve railroad-highway grade crossings
Federal, State, and local transportation agencies responsible for the design, construction, and/or maintenance of railroad-highway crossings. State and local traffic engineers responsible for highway-railroad grade crossing safety.
