NOTICE: Report grade crossing emergencies by calling the Emergency Notification Number (ENS) posted onsite at the grade crossing. Call 911 if the number is missing.

The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) Rail Crossing Locator helps you locate highway-rail grade crossings and explore detailed information from the USDOT's grade crossing database(s). Users can: locate crossings by USDOT Crossing ID, address or by exploring the map; access inventory records submitted by states and railroads; and view accident history. Users can also select from multiple base maps and identify railroad crossings by their characteristics. This app empowers the public (including transportation, emergency response, and community and safety organizations) to join the FRA's efforts to further improve grade crossing safety and awareness. Please Note: States and Railroads are responsible for the accuracy of the grade crossing physical and operating characteristics within the USDOT inventory records, which are the basis for the information provided in the Rail Crossing Locator app. While the FRA does everything possible to ensure the accuracy of information provided in this app, it is ultimately the crossing owner’s responsibility to provide accurate information to the FRA. FRA assumes no liability for the accuracy of crossing information provided in this app.

UPDATED 2018/Feb:
App now CRASHES when tapping on a crossing. Changing 5 star rating to 2 stars.
if you are ever curious about which railroad company owns the tracks at a given road crossing you can use this app to discover the railroad company and the name of the railroad line that crosses a road.

Good, but....

This is a good app with basic information regarding a specific crossing. To do more than just be a resource for acquiring basic info about a crossing, the app should provide live data regarding the status of the gate (up/down), and a way to report gate issues within the app.
This a good app and can become a great one with a little more work.
