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 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 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. States and Railroads are responsible for the accuracy of the grade crossing physical and operating characteristics within inventory records.

Customer Reviews

New emergency contact info is awesome!!

Love this app!! I work in rail/safety field and use this app all the time to locate and validate crossing characteristics. AND the latest update that provides the ENS # allows anyone to help save lives!!

The app works perfectly fine and as described, although every once in a while some GX's location is bad and takes a while to find.

Unlike others, I'm glad it doesn't show realtime train traffic. That would be a big security risk in the world we live in now (unfortunately).

Useless for the most part

I was hoping this app would provide real time information about whether or not a train was passing or blocking the crossing. It doesn't. It should. Why not? Deciding whether or not to take a route that adds several miles to the trip would be made easier.


I'd DEFINITELY recommend this app if you are a railfanner. This app makes locations railroad crossings way easier. 5/5 stars!
