Railroad Crossing

Report a Blocked Railroad Crossing

If you drive regularly in Lake County, chances are you’ve had the frustrating experience of being blocked by a train that is moving slowly or stuck on the tracks altogether. Not only does it inconvenience motorists, but these delays can prevent first responders from getting where they need to go to provide help in a timely manner.

Now, you can report delays at railroad crossings caused by trains through a new web portal developed by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). The site asks users to provide specific information, including date, time, location and duration of delay so the FRA can better understand the scope of the problem. The FRA will share the information with stakeholders, using it to help facilitate local solutions to blocked crossing issues.  

Report a blocked railroad crossing at fra.dot.gov/blockedcrossings.
