Report a problEm – emergency or critical situations
If you become aware of a signal malfunction or other dangerous situation (such as a stalled vehicle, other obstruction, or track damage), the appropriate railroad should be contacted. Highway-railroad crossings are marked with a unique identifier (a seven digit number-letter combination.) The unique identifier and a number to call is posted at each railroad crossing.
If not at a crossing, a list of emergency contacts for all railroads operating is Iowa is also available.
