Petition for Waiver of Compliance

    Under part 211 of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), this 
document provides the public notice that on November 28, 2016, the 
Village of New Lenox, IL, (Village) petitioned the Federal Railroad 
Administration (FRA) for a waiver of compliance from certain provisions 
of the Federal railroad safety regulations contained at 49 CFR 222.9. 
FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA-2017-0044.
    The Village is seeking a waiver from the definition of a non-
traversable curb in 49 CFR 222.9, to allow for quiet zone risk 
reduction credit for the 6-inch high medians that extend approximately 
330 feet to the west of the Laraway Road crossing (DOT #478794H) and 
655 feet to the east of the crossing. Specifically, New Lenox is 
requesting an exception to the requirement that non-traversable curbs 
may be used only at locations where highway speeds do not exceed 40 
mph.
    The Village asserts the Laraway Road crossing is under the 
jurisdiction of the Will County Department of Transportation, which is 
unwilling to reduce the current 45 mph highway speed limit at the 
crossing. Therefore, while the current highway speed limit would likely 
remain unchanged, the Village notes that the Will County Division of 
Transportation would be willing to install 40-mph speed advisory signs 
approximately 300 feet in advance of the Laraway Road crossing for both 
eastbound and westbound highway traffic.
