Fencing

Railroad FencingRailroads are required to construct and maintain fences to specific standards on each side of the right-of-way in order to keep livestock off the tracks (Iowa Code 327G.3). If a railroad fails to fence, the railroad is subject to penalties and is liable for any livestock losses.  Complaints concerning fencing should be addressed directly to the railroad. The Office of Rail Transportation can provide the appropriate railroad contact information.
