USA: Final National Highway-Rail Crossing Inventory Reporting Requirements rule published

8 Jan

The January 6th, 2014 Federal Register sets out the final National Highway-Rail Crossing Inventory Reporting Requirements rule for which the Federal Railroad Administration is the lead agency.

In summary this final rule requires railroads that operate one or more trains through highway-rail or pathway crossings to submit information to the U.S. DOT National Highway-Rail Crossing Inventory about the crossings through which they operate. These amendments, mandated by section 204 of the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008, require railroads to submit information about previously unreported and new highway-rail and pathway crossings to the U.S. DOT National Highway-Rail Crossing Inventory and to periodically update existing crossing data.

This final rule is effective March 9th, 2015. Petitions for reconsideration must be received on or before February 25, 2015. Petitions for reconsideration will be posted in the docket for this proceeding. Comments on any submitted petition for reconsideration must be received on or before April 13th, 2015.
