In many instances a standard concrete grade crossing panel system will not work in some locations of your light/commuter rail project. Depending upon the type of crosstie, fasteners and rail boot assembly being utilized, customization of the grade crossing panels may be necessary.

Century Group’s highly experienced field representatives have the ability to take as-built field measurements on-site to insure that your highway, pedestrian or hi-rail access crossing panels meet your specific project requirements. If your light rail project requires crossing panels in a curve, turnout or direct fixation, Century Group can meet the challenge.
