Request VIII-32(C) Stop or Yield Signs at Highway-Rail Grade Crossings.
Delete Section 8B-9 (pate 8B-7) in its entirety and replace with the following
8B-9 STOP or YIELD Signs at Grade Crossings (R1-1, W3-1, R1-2, W3-2)
STOP or YIELD signs may be used at highway-rail grade crossings, at the discretion of the responsible State or local jurisdiction, for crossings that have two or more trains per day and are without automatic traffic control devices.
For other crossings with passive protection, STOP or YIELD signs may be used after need is established by a traffic engineering study. The study should take into consideration such factors as: volume and character of highway and train traffic, adequacy of stopping sight distance, crossing accident history, and need for active control devices.
For all highway-rail grade crossings where STOP or YIELD signs are installed, the placement shall conform to the requirements of MUTCD Section 2B-9 Location of Stop Sign and Yield Signs. STOP AHEAD or YIELD AHEAD Advance Warning signs shall also be installed.
