This course will help participants assess, evaluate, and enhance crossing safety in their jurisdictions. It will also cover the planning and funding process for crossing improvement projects.
The training provides information on rail-highway crossings, grade crossing components, including program/project development and administration. Course activities provide the participants a chance to engage with the content in meaningful ways and includes such items 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. Throughout the course, participants submit questions and assignments through a monitored mailbox and should anticipate responses within 1 business week or sooner.
Participants work at their own pace, accessing the course materials and assignments via NHI "My Training" page.
The target audience for this course includes personnel responsible for the design, construction, and/or maintenance of highway-rail crossings, or those responsible for grade crossing safety. Such personnel may include planners, engineers, and other roles from Federal, State, and local transportation agencies, as well as contractors, consultants, and construction representatives.
