This study updated the Freight Rail Grade Crossing Assessment Study
completed by NJTPA in 2008 to address the impacts of increased freight rail traffic along the region’s major freight rail lines. The conditions on the ground have changed since the completion of the original study. Freight rail traffic continues to increase. Additionally, many of the grade crossings evaluated during the previous study have undergone significant improvement. The purpose of this consultant activity was to update the original study to document the current conditions and operations at grade crossings along the major freight rail lines in the NJTPA region, to score and prioritize the grade crossings in terms of need and to develop recommendations for addressing issues at the top 10 grade crossings.
