DOT/FRA RIN: 2130-AB89 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Roadway Worker Protection; Miscellaneous Revisions 

This rulemaking would revise FRA's Roadway Worker Protection regulations in 49 CFR, part 214 to further advance the on-track safety of railroad employees and contractors engaged in maintenance-of-way activities throughout the general railroad system of transportation, including clarification of existing regulations. In doing so, FRA will review existing technical bulletins and a safety advisory dealing with on-track safety to consider implications, and as appropriate, consider enhancements to the existing regulations. This rulemaking was recently downgraded to nonsignificant and will not appear on next month's report.
