North Carolina Rail Crossings - 3rd Quarter 2017 - North Carolina Department of Transportation


Abstract: The dataset provided includes point data for use in GIS that represents public and pedestrian crossings in North Carolina. Attributes for each crossing inculde the crossing's FRA identification number and the latitude and longitude of the crossing. Crossing location and status were verfied by cross-referencing Federal Railroad Administration public crossing database, North Carolina Department of Transportation Rail Division's crossing database, railroad company track charts and aerial imagery. Where in doubt, crossing status has been investigated by contacting the rail company, land owner, or municipalilty within whose jurisdiction the crossing falls. The attributes are derived directly from NCDOT's State Authoritative Rail and Highway database (SARAH) database.
Purpose: This dataset is made available to provide a representation of state maintained railroad crossings for mapping, planning and analysis purposes.
