Introduction to Railroad Crossing Inventory

Railroad Crossing Inventory can be used to develop a railroad crossing inventory and inform stakeholders.

Transportation engineers want to know more about railroad crossings because they directly affect the safety and efficiency of a transportation system. As a result, they develop railroad crossing inventories that provide crucial information about each crossing and how it’s being used. The information gathered in these inventories also helps engineers identify potential safety hazards, plan maintenance and upgrade projects, and prioritize funding for necessary improvements.

The Railroad Crossing Inventory solution delivers a set of capabilities that help state and local governments develop railroad crossing inventories and inform stakeholders.
