Railroad

The Railroad Team is responsible for three primary functions:

  • Working with railroad companies when an ADOT-managed project involves a railroad
  • Managing the Federal Highway-Railroad Grade Crossing Safety Program (i.e., Section 130)
  • Managing the Statewide Railroad Crossing Inventory

Please note that the Utility and Railroad Section does not have any oversight of the Valley Metro light rail, the Tucson Street Car or Commuter Rail Planning. ADOT's Multimodal Planning Division is responsible for these functions and these are their Web pages:
