MoDOT has conducted a safety study of railroad crossings along Route 60 between Republic and Marionville. A series of listening sessions were held in Republic, Marionville and Billings to get feedback about the railroad crossings. A final report has been made. The study has identified several safety needs along the rail corridor. Currently, there is no funding for the projects. However, MoDOT is pursuing federal grants to fund the projects and is working with BNSF to share in the cost of the safety upgrades.
