Susan Fleming (au)
About 93 trains a day on average crossed into the continental U.S. from Canada and Mexico, according to the Department of Transportationsäó»s (DOTäó»s) Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS). Trains and enter and leave through 30 U.S. border ports of entry (POEs) -- 23 on the northern border and 7 on the southern border. Although international freight rail plays an important role in U.S. economic and trade interests, the movement of rail through U.S. communities at the border can result in blocked highway-rail grade crossings and vehicle traffic congestion. This report (1) describes the factors that affect the movement of freight rail and the actions taken by federal agencies to expedite freight rail in selected POEs; and (2) examines what is known about the impacts of freight rail operations on highway-rail grade crossings in POE communities. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
