About The Rail Corridor Safety Conference

Focusing on the latest developments in rail corridor safety issues, highway-rail grade-crossing safety improvements, and local agency planning and construction around rails, the Rail Corridor Safety Conference is held every two years. The conference brings together all of the parties working to improve mobility and safety in rail transportation corridors and engaged attendees in the ongoing dialog about rail corridor safety.

Content is geared toward engineers and public works directors from cities and counties with at-grade rail crossings, state DOT and public utility staff with responsibility for rail or highway oversight, rail operators, local agency elected officials, consultants, academics and researchers, and suppliers of crossing equipment.

Session topics are typically cutting-edge and provide information about regulations, best practices, and new technologies. Past sessions include local multi-agency project planning and development, crossing diagnostics, rail safety, security, and preparedness, grade crossing design and practice, pedestrian crossings and trespass, multi-modal integration (shared corridors), and more.

The conference is co-organized by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) and the University of California, Berkeley Institute of Transportation Studies.
