The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Rail Administration (FRA) has announced the availability of a railway grade crossing collision dashboard known as GX Dash!  This data visualization tool allows users to interact with FRA’s highway-rail grade crossing and inventory data at the national, state, and county levels.  The dashboard includes mapping and trend line information about collisions, injuries, and fatalities, including information on warning devices at the crossing, vehicle and driver, time of day, and more.  Data are downloadable as well as interactive in the dashboard.
