Federal Highway Administration updates grade crossing handbook


The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has issued the third edition of "Highway-Rail Crossing Handbook" to disseminate current practices and requirements for developing engineering treatments for grade crossings.

The new edition features a "substantial update" to, and a revision of, the department's 2007 handbook, FHWA officials said in a post on the department's website.

This latest edition is intended to provide practitioners with critical background information and noteworthy practices consistent with the 2009 "Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways" and more recent expert guidance.

The new handbook also includes links to relevant information available on the web, FHWA officials said.
