Highway-Rail Grade Crossings Overview. Highway-railroad grade crossings are intersections where a highway crosses a railroad at-grade. They are also called level crossings in other countries such as Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom. To avoid collisions, warning/control devices are required at grade crossings just like intersecting.

At grade crossings, the owner generally installs and maintains the tracks, the roadway surface between and around the rails, and traffic control devices on their rights of way.

While the railroad owns the track, the roadway at a crossing is owned by either a public or private entity.
