MnDOT Urges Motorists to Use Emergency Notification System at RR Crossings


The Minnesota Department of Transportation is reminding motorists to use railroad emergency notification system signs when there is a safety issue or emergency situation at a rail grade crossing.

The blue and white signs are posted near the crossing on both sides of the road.

The emergency notification system sign includes the railroad’s emergency contact phone number and the U.S. Department of Transportation’s national crossing phone number, which identifies the exact location of the crossing to the railroads.

Motorists can call the phone number listed on the sign to report emergency or dangerous situations such as a signal malfunction, if someone or something is on the tracks, or if the crossing is blocked for more than 10 minutes.
