North Carolina DOT adds safety devices at six grade crossings


The North Carolina Department of Transportation’s (NCDOT) Rail Division recently completed safety improvements at six grade crossings.

The division revised crossing signals and installed gates at:
• Aberdeen, Carolina and Western Railroad crossings in Candor and Mount Gilead;
• one CSX Transportation crossing in Magnolia; and
• two Norfolk Southern Railway crossings in Walnut Cove and one in Asheboro.

Maintenance funding for the crossings will be divided equally between the state and railroads. The projects were part of NCDOT’s statewide program aimed at adding or improving signals and gates at public crossings. Automatic warning devices now have been installed at more than 2,400 of the state’s 4,100-plus public crossings, according to NCDOT.
