Importance of Maintaining and Repairing Railroad Crossings

Crossings need regular checks-ups and repairs; this ensures that signals work right, and tracks are in good condition. With well-kept crossings, drivers have clear signs when a train is coming, or it’s safe to go on.

Safe crossings help manage traffic smoothly and keep everyone moving without worries. They cut down risks of accidents between trains and vehicles.

For communities around us, it means safer roads for families, school buses, and trucks carrying goods across towns.

 We keep railroad crossings safe and working right. Our team checks, fixes, and makes them better.

Inspection and Assessment

We begin by carefully examining and assessing the safety of the railroad crossing. Our team inspects every component, including signs, signals, and the road surface. Ensuring safety is our main priority; we also verify compliance with all regulations from the Federal Railroad Administration.

Then, we document any issues that require repair or updates. This strategy helps us prioritize tasks to enhance safety and ensure smooth crossings over the tracks. Once we thoroughly inspect everything, we repair and maintain the railroad crossings.

Repair and Maintenance

After a full check at the railroad crossing, it’s time for repairs.

Here’s what we do for repairs and maintenance:

  1. We look for any broken parts or areas that could be problematic. This includes checking the rails, ties, and the surface of the crossing.
  2. If there is damage to a rail, we replace it. If ties are old, we put in new ones.
  3. We replace rails with high-strength steel alloy designed for heavy train traffic.
  4. We make sure the crossing surface is smooth. Bumps can be bad for both cars and trains.
  5. Our crew checks that warning signals are working correctly. The lights must blink properly, and gates should move smoothly.
  6. We also check drainage around the area closely because water shouldn’t gather around; it might cause damage over time.
  7. All work adheres strictly to FRA regulations, ensuring the safety of tracks and roadways

Making your roadway safe and smooth is very significant to us—it matters just as much to everyone who uses it every day!
