Century Concrete Railroad Pedestrian Crossings Provide Safe Walking Surface in Industrial Applications

Century Group Inc. provided its precast concrete railroad grade crossing panels to an industrial plant located in Sulphur, Louisiana. The concrete crossing panels were installed in the facility's rail spur with a gauge panel traversing an adjacent ditch providing a stable and level walkway. The Century pedestrian crossing panels featured an elastomeric rubber flangeway filler and a non-skid walking surface. Once the pedestrian crossing was installed the perimeter of the crossing was painted with safety yellow paint to enhance visibility.

Century's Special Projects Coordinator – Chris Gaudet commented, "The installation of our concrete pedestrian crossing went well and we are pleased to be a part of this project which enhances safety for personnel who must traverse the railroad tracks during daily operations.  Century Group was able to cast a lagless crossing panel that was used to bridge over the ditch adjacent to the pedestrian crossing providing a safe walking surface for security and operations personnel.”
