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.

Key Features:
- Locate highway-rail grade crossings near your location
- Locate highway-rail grade crossings by USDOT Crossing ID
- Locate highway-rail grade crossings by address or by exploring the map
- Search for highway-rail grade crossing by characteristics such as Railroad, Type, or Quiet Zone
- View the official USDOT highway-rail grade crossing inventory record
- Share the inventory record via email
- View the official USDOT collision record with accident/collision history for specific crossings
- Get directions to a grade crossing
- Call the Emergency Notification System (ENS) number to report a crossing emergency
- Provide the FRA with information about specific crossings

Needs improvement

The recent update released to address crossings that are not loading is not working. Pleas include contact information when the app fails to load crossings properly.

Needs Work

I’m not sure if it’s a server issue or what, but 90% of the time when I attempt to use this app the crossings will not populate, even with full signal o on WiFi. I’ve tried all I know, and it fails on multiple devices simultaneously. When this happens, I resort to looking up a crossing on the web-based form, and the site always times out when trying to load.

I’m not sure what the issue is, but it’s infuriating and renders this resource useless, I hope it is improved upon.

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.
