Highway-Railroad Grade Crossing Program

As required by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), each highway-railroad crossing is inspected for safety every three years. The New Jersey Department of Transportation's (NJDOT) Bureau of Railroad Engineering Services conducts the inspection for 1,529 public highway-railroad grade crossings in New Jersey. The safety rating is based on several safety aspects including surface condition, sight distance, alignment and the type and condition of the warning devices. The highway-railroad crossings are upgraded in priority order by the owner of the railroad in coordination with the NJDOT, utilizing FHWA funds.
