Railroad Preemption Design

Innovative solutions that ensure compliance and enhance safety

Preemption time is the sum of right-of-way transfer time, queue clearance time, and separation time

OK Rail Signal, Inc. are experts at designing safe railroad preemption systems, giving vehicles ample opportunity to clear the track area before the train arrives at the crossing. We employ industry-leading engineers who have designed these systems at the federal level.

Our process takes into account conformance assessments, pedestrian behavior, turn restrictions, interconnection options, and more, all of which allow for traffic movement that won’t conflict with trains.

Our Railroad Preemption Design considers:

  • Protected movements for track clearance
  • Yellow trap condition
  • Back-up power sources
  • Pre-signals
  • Interconnection options
