Petition for Waiver of Compliance

    Under part 211 of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), this 
document provides the public notice that on August 3, 2018, the 
Regional Transportation District (RTD) and the City of Denver, 
Colorado, petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) for a 
waiver of compliance from certain provisions of the Federal railroad 
safety regulations contained at 49 CFR part 222. FRA assigned the 
petition Docket Number FRA-2016-0028.
    Specifically, petitioners seek a waiver from the provisions of 49 
CFR 222.35(b)(1) to establish a new quiet zone consisting of twelve 
public highway-rail grade crossings with active grade crossing warning 
devices comprising both flashing lights and gates that are not equipped 
with constant warning time devices. The crossing warning devices on the 
proposed ``Denver East Corridor Quiet Zone'' on the RTD A-Line are 
primarily activated by a wireless crossing activation system (WCAS) 
using ``GPS-determined train speed and location to predict how many 
seconds a train is from the crossing.'' Petitioners assert that this 
information is communicated wirelessly to the crossing warning devices 
and seeks to provide constant warning times. Additionally, this system 
is supplemented by a conventional track warning system in case the WCAS 
is unavailable.

concerning the petition, is available for review online at
