Pipeline Longitudinal

When applying for a longitudinal pipeline encroachment on railroad property, the following must be submitted to the Real Estate Administration:

  • A completed Application, plans and drawings of the proposed project (three sets of each).
  • A non-refundable $600 review fee (check or money order) payable to Montana Rail Link, Inc.

Once MRL's Engineering Department has reviewed and approved your application, the documentation necessary to draft a pipeline crossing permit will be forwarded to the Real Estate Administration. Once the agreement has been drawn up, you will receive the originals for signature

Before Construction Can Commence:

  • All executed copies of the agreement must be forwarded to the Real Estate Administration along with a $325 processing fee and payment for the first year's permit fee. Your check or money order must be made payable to Montana Rail Link, Inc.
  • Proof of insurance in the form of a certificate from an approved insurance carrier following the agreement and one week's notice of the schedule of work. Railroad Protective Insurance may be required.
  • You, or your contractor, must have a copy of the fully executed agreement on site during construction.

While the project is underway, the Engineering Department will assign a contract engineer and/or flagman to observe the work to ensure that it meets the agreed upon construction specifications. The actual cost of construction inspection and/or the flagmen will be billed to the permit holder.

Please plan and allow for approximately six months to process your service request.
