Railroad flag protection (flagging) is required whenever people, vehicles, or equipment are within 25' of the tracks. Flagging is also required if equipment can reach within 25' of the tracks.

Flagging requests must be submitted 10 business days prior to the start of work. NOPB will make a reasonable effort to provide flagging to accommodate contractors' schedules.
