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.

Happy when it work, aggravating when it doesnt. Multiple of us having issues with app closing out when tapping on the crossing when and if the crossings even show up.



UPDATED 2018/Feb:
App now CRASHES when tapping on a crossing. Changing 5 star rating to 2 stars.
if you are ever curious about which railroad company owns the tracks at a given road crossing you can use this app to discover the railroad company and the name of the railroad line that crosses a road.
