The North Carolina Railroad Company recognizes the importance of regulating and maintaining the 317-mile, 200-foot-wide corridor to ensure appropriate and safe use. At any time, additional tracks and infrastructure could be installed within the corridor to increase passenger and freight rail capacity. NCRR encourages Best Practices for Surveyors, Contractors, and Adjacent Property Owners. NCRR has a program in place to accommodate those who wish to access certain areas of the corridor for approved uses and the appropriate agreement.
As North Carolina’s urban and rural populations grow, trains and people meet with increasing frequency. NCRR makes identifying risks and vulnerabilities and minimizing safety hazards along North Carolina’s rail corridors a priority. Visit our Safety page for more information.
