§

3786. Tracks of more than one railroad

When, upon an

application or petition brought under the provisions of section 3783 of this

title, the board finds that a public highway crosses or is crossed by the

tracks of more than one railroad and the tracks of such railroads are so near

together that public convenience requires the work of separating the grades to

be done under and in compliance with one order, it shall give notice to all the

corporations operating such railroads to appear before it and be heard upon the

application. After such notice and hearing, the board shall determine what

alterations shall be made, if any, so as to separate the grades of all such

crossings at the same time, and shall determine by whom such work shall be

done, and shall apportion the expense to be borne by the railroad corporations

between such corporations in such manner as the board deems just and proper.
