FRA Launches Webpage to Report Blocked Crossings

The Federal Railroad Administration created a webpage that can be used by the public and law enforcement to report blocked highway-rail grade crossings.

The page collects such information as date, time, location and duration.

In a news release the FRA said it will use the information collected will to gain a more complete picture of where, when and for how long such obstructions occur at the nation’s approximately 130,000 public grade crossings.

The agency said it will share that information with railroads and government officials and use it to help create local solutions to blocked crossing issues.

Filling out the form online should take an average of three minutes the FRA said.

The page can be found at www.fra.dot.gov/blockedcrossings
