Railroad Crossing Guide

In the 2016 Legislative Session, MMUA collaborated with the Minnesota Rural Electric Association and Minnesota Telecom Alliance to pass a new law to provide a standard one-time fee for utility facilities crossing railroad rights-of-way and establish a timeline for railroads to approve or deny a crossing before project construction can begin.

This  Railroad Crossing Guide presents an overview of Minnesota’s 2016 railroad crossings law, along with letter templates to assist utilities when encountering various crossing scenarios with railroads.
