This document must be dated and signed by the Contractor and submitted to the State before occupying or working on Railroad
right-of-way.
1. No change, which has a direct effect on the Railroad, will be made to construction plans without submitting revised plans
and receiving approval from the Railroad. Work covered by the plans, that requires flagging, will be covered by the
Railroad/Highway Agreement. For work that is a result of the contractor's discretion, flagging protection will be required
when equipment crosses or is working within 25 feet (7.62 meters) of center of any live track. When deemed necessary
by local Railroad officers, a flagman may be required at all times while working on Railroad right-of- way in high density
rail traffic area.
2. Crossing of any Railroad tracks must be done at approved locations and must be full depth timber, rubber, etc. Any
equipment with steel wheels, lugs or tracks must not cross steel rails without the use of rubber tires or other approved
protection. This shall apply specifically to, but not be limited to, access for Contractor furnished gravel, borrow or waste
sites. The Contractor will be required to obtain a permit from the Railroad, and comply with any provisions thereof,
before using any private Railroad crossings. All track crossing locations must be covered by a Private Roadway and
Crossing Agreement. This does not apply to any public crossing.
3. Costs of flagging or planking protection of the tracks, which are a direct result of the planned construction, will be paid for
by the State. Costs of flagging, planking for protection of the tracks, installation of new crossings or other work caused
by the Contractor's discretion, will be paid by the Contractor.
4. When work to be performed by the Contractor is not covered in the Railroad/Highway agreement, the Contractor must
furnish a plan to the Railroad for approval showing details as to how any work that may affect the Railroad will be
accomplished.
6. Storing of construction materials or any other material, including dirt, sand, etc., within the Railroad right-of-way, will not
be allowed unless covered by an easement, construction permit, or Contractor's permit/lease.
7. Construction within 25 feet (7.62 meters) of the center of any track not covered by the Railroad/Highway agreement will
require plan approval and authorization by the Railroad Superintendent Maintenance and Engineering. This includes,
but is not limited to, any excavation, slope work and driving of sheet piling.
8. No vehicles, equipment or machines shall be parked or stored unattended within 25 feet (7.62 meters) of any track, on
railroad right-of-way, without specific written approval of the Railroad.
9. When any work is to be performed on Railroad property by the Contractor that is not shown in the construction plans, the
Contractor must submit a detailed plan of the work to the Railroad for their approval.
