Abstract: This study examines two highway-railroad grade crossings in Darby Borough, Delaware County, Pennsylvania. The purpose is to document existing conditions at the grade crossings and provide background to possible grade crossing improvement or separation scenarios, which will be explored in greater depth in the Phase II report. This report is divided into six chapters: an introduction and study purpose; general background information about Darby Borough, the two grade crossings, and Class I grade crossings in general; a summary of data collected for this study; an examination of possible improvements based on the Federal Railroad Administration guidelines and example projects from around the country; and some of the key next steps that will be undertaken in Phase II.
