Innovative Solutions has been an approved highway crossing sub consultant for Union Pacific Railroad since 2008. Personnel perform in the neighborhood 100 designs yearly. These designs include plan and schematic views, application of the Siemens GCP-4000 crossing system, revision of existing design to accommodate new designs, and programming of the GCP-4000 systems.
Union Pacific’s system includes over 20,000 rail miles with operations throughout the West and Midwest. Crossing design requires designers are familiar not only with the equipment to be applied, but also with FRA crossing regulations, state requirements, and best practices promulgated by AREMA and the MUTCD.
