According to the Federal Railroad Administration, trains travel across more than 212,000 highway-rail grade crossings in the United States every day. Railroad crossings are some of the most heavily trafficked stretches of track, suffering constant wear from cars and trucks as well as trains.
When a crossing needs to be demolished and replaced, you need a contractor with experience in railroad crossing construction, along with certified personnel and the equipment needed to do the job.

|Case Study - Railroad Crossing Construction
A chronic problem for one Midwestern community was the old and worn-out railroad crossing in the center of town. The ride over the tracks was always a bumpy one and extremely hard on the vehicles that crossed it on a daily basis. The railroad was adding a siding nearby and decided they would renovate the railroad crossing at the same time. Following a bidding process, Hulcher Services Inc. was chosen to lead the railroad crossing construction project, which included removing existing crossing, grading, installing new track panel and laying asphalt.
