Description

This dataset contains an inventory of highway-rail crossings throughout the United States. This information previously was provided voluntarily by the States or by the railroads controlling the crossings. Now this information is required by law, and so this dataset is in transition. The inventory includes information about the railroad owning the crossing, the location of the crossing, information about the highway, traffic control information, and physical characteristics of the crossing.
