Quiet Zones- silencing the train horns

Over the last several years, I have researched the options regarding Quiet Zones and directional horns on several occasions. It is a recurring request from constituents and the federal policies seem to be a bit of a moving target. Recently, two residents independently raised the issue again, but this time there may be a window of opportunity. LeAnna Cumber and Lilla Ross have both expressed a willingness to spearhead the effort and believe there may be grant opportunities available to defray the cost of required road improvements at crossings. The type of improvements required has changed from several years ago and recent improvements on Emerson may make the effort feasible throughout the Council District- from the Southbank to Bowden Yard. Stay tuned – we may get there yet…..
