Performance of Grade Crossing Surface Materials

Grade-crossings are an integral part of both railway and highway networks and are the main location where the two modes converge with each other. Safety for both train and roadway vehicle traffic is of utmost importance, as well as the longevity of the crossing materials. This project was conducted by the ETEC (Efficiency through Engineering and Construction) Enterprise. ETEC partnered with MDOT, the RTP, and the NURail Center to investigate different grade crossing surface materials used in the State of Michigan and to perform analysis related to the performance of various materials.
