Private Crossings

Browse Private Crossings

For employee and public safety, NS' goal is to remove highway-rail grade crossings where practical. NS opposes establishing new crossings. 

NS, U.S. DOT, and state agencies encourage parties to eliminate crossings by constructing bridges and by diverting traffic to existing overhead, subgrade, and at-grade crossings. Consider alternatives before submitting a private road crossing application.

If you seek an agreement for an existing crossing, fill out the private road crossing application.
