HB 472 (BR 149) - J. Stewart
AN ACT relating to the removal of railroad crossings.
Create a new section of KRS Chapter 277 to define the terms "land-locked" and "necessary access"; prohibit a railroad company from removing a grade crossing on a private drive that would leave a property land-locked unless the railroad company follows notification procedures; define the notification procedures, deadlines and protest rights of property owners; specify that the section does not apply to public roads; amend KRS 277.990, to fine a railroad company that violates the provisions of Section 1 of the Act $100 for each day a crossing is removed from the private road.
