Highway-Rail Grade Crossing Safety Action Plan Overview

The Railway-Highway Crossings (Section 130) Program provides funds for the elimination of hazards at railway-highway crossings. 10 States with the highest number of grade crossing collisions on average during calendar years 2006, 2007 and 2008 were required to develop a State highway-rail grade crossing action plans as required under 49 CFR 234.11. 

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) developed the Highway-Rail Grade Crossing Safety Action Plan in 2011 to comply with the federal requirements and outline how the Department would accomplish the goal of a highway‐rail safety program that promotes a safe, economical and efficient transportation system in the public interest.

This plan will be updated once the Federal Rail Administration (FRA) finalizes new requirements.
