Performance Metrics That Drive Investment
At-Grade BNSF Rail Crossing Safety Study
The study approach was centered on a robust analytical approach toward alternative development that provided MoDOT and the BNSF with the highest potential safety return on investment. CMT developed the exposure index model and crash prediction model to provide the department with analytical data that supported the recommended safety improvement alternatives and prioritized improvement within the corridor. A combination of the analytical data and public feedback was utilized to develop a master plan for capital improvements along the entire corridor.
This project was awarded $5.2 million by the US DOT and FRA as part of the Consolidated Rail Infrastructure and Safety Improvements (CRISI) grant program. CMT provided the grant administration assistance that led to receiving funding for the project.
