GRADE CROSSINGS ON HIGHWAY
TO BE RT.nrrwATfl p
Wash! acton, D. C.—The grade
crowing* must go and they will be
eliminated wherever; , possible on
the roads at the Federal Aid High
way System, which will he built as
a result ol the passage ot the Fed
eral Highway Act. When the roads
which form the primary or inter
state system are constructed, no
grade crossing will be allowed to
remain that it is at all practicable
to avoid. Every effort will he made
to make the roads ot the secondary
system equally safe, but In this case
It is recognised that elimination
may not be practicable in all cases
at this time.
In making this announcement the
Bureau of Public Roads, United
States Department of Agriculture,
under whose supervision the fund is
allotted and construction is under
taken, is putting Into effect a pol
icy which it has long advocated in
principle, and whose adoption it has
urged with increasing effectiveness
upon state highway officials for
some time past. The policy is
meeting with hearty cooperation on
the part of the states, and the Am
erican Association of State High
way Officials by resolution have
pledged its best efforts to cooper
ate to eliminate grade crossings on

Instead of grade crossings there
will be constructed, wherever pos
sible, in the future either a Ibridge
or an underpass where roadway and
railway initerseot. Important roads
which now cross nd rearoas rail
road lines at grades hereafter will
be located entirely on one side of
the railroad, even though to do so
may increase the cost of construc

need of eliminating grade crossings,
have stated their desire to cooperate
with the department in carrying out
Where crossings are unavoidable,
or where local interests justify
construction of highways to cross
railroad lines, the road will be so
located as to pass over tthe track or
under It. In most instances of this
sort the railroads bear one-half of
the cost of building ithe bridge or
The prime object of the depart
ment's policy to eliminate grade
crossings on Federal Aid roads 1 b
the saving of human lives. This pol
icy prahably will involve increased
expense of construction in the case
of some roads, but it is believed this
la justified by the saving of lives.
During the three years ending with
1920, according to ithe best records
available to the department, 3,636
lives were lost at grade crossings In
the United States and 10,644 per
sons were injured.

Among the farmers of this com
munity the winter season is the time
of year when a period of relaxation
is to be had and the long armings
are given over t|o, visiting, parties
and general fun making, the spring,
summer and fall being too busy a
•time for anything but hard labor,
so that during the winter months
all the play of the year must bo
crowded in or not had at all. In
this way neighbors become bettor
acquainted, the problems of the com
ing season are discussed and a com
parison of methods made, so that if
better success has been made Iby one
the whole community is acquainted
with the method used, so that all
can try the same procedure another
year if Ithey wish.
