State and Feds Examine Crude Oil Rail Lines

The New York State Department of Transportation and the Federal Railroad Administration have completed another round of targeted rail inspections intended to improve public safety and reduce potential dangers associated with the transport of crude oil across New York State. Inspection teams examined approximately 251 miles of track and 91 switches. Overall, the teams uncovered and addressed three critical defects and 24 non-critical defects. The inspections focused on track and track hardware. Although crude oil train traffic is down significantly since the highs of 2014, state and federal inspectors remain vigilant, regularly examining tracks, facilities and available crude oil unit trains.
