Services | Land Access & Crossings

Do you need to access the land around our tracks?

Beyond Powering your Business by Rail and Real Estate, we strive to make all aspects of the rail process simple and painless. Quite possibly one of the most cumbersome interactions one can have with railroads is when you need access to the area around the tracks themselves. Whether you need to install utility lines or build a road over tracks, we will help you get what you need done to seamlessly achieve your goals.  If you have any questions about how to access OmniTRAX-owned real estate, give us a call or send us an email at  OmniTRAX Real Estate.

RIGHT OF ENTRY

If you need to access railroad-owned property as a part of your adjacent project which may include, but is not limited to, digging, drilling, soil sampling, monitoring, surveys, etc., you will be required to obtain written permission in the form of a Right of Entry agreement.  We grant thirty (30) day Right of Entry agreements. If you will require a Right of Entry for longer than a thirty day period, please let us know in advance.
