In accordance with Part 235 of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and 49 U.S.C. 20502(a), this document provides the public notice that by a document dated December 26, 2102, CSX Transportation, Inc. (CSX) seeks approval from the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) for the discontinuance or modification of a signal system. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA-2013-0018.
CSX proposes to discontinue the use of, and to remove, the pipe-connected approach-locked derails at the Aberdeen & Rockfish Railroad Company's (A&R) crossing at Milepost A210.62 in CSX's Florence Division, South End Subdivision, in Fayetteville, NC. A&R, which operates the intersecting rail line, has been notified of the modifications. CSX has been granted approval, through an application in Docket Number FRA-2010-0160, for other modifications that it will make to the signal system at the A&R crossing in preparation for the installation of Positive Train Control.
CSX intends to modernize this location by installing new microprocessor-based equipment, houses, and signals. The existing dwarf signals on A&R will be replaced with high signals for improved visibility and push-button operation. A one-way, low-speed diamond frog will also be installed at this location, limiting the speed on A&R to 10 mph or less.
A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at www.regulations.gov and in person at the U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., W12-140, Washington, DC 20590.
