How do I report a train that appears to be stuck and blocking a railroad crossing for an extended period of time?

Blocked crossings occur when stopped trains impede the flow of motor vehicle or pedestrian traffic at railroad tracks for extended periods of time.  Blocked crossings pose potential safety risks, specifically in locations where trains routinely hinder roadway and pedestrian movement for extended periods.  In these cases, frustrated drivers seeking to avoid extended delays may attempt to clear the crossing before a train arrives, and pedestrians may be tempted to crawl between stopped railcars.  Further, blocked crossings can have detrimental effects on quality of life, making people late for work, school, and appointments and possibly contributing to roadway congestion.  Currently, there are approximately 130,000 public highway/rail grade crossings in the United States.

If you are experiencing an blocked crossing for an extended period visit the Federal Railroad Administration website to report it.
