Quiet Zone Update

Once construction at all three crossings has been completed, the Township is required to send out a “Notice of Quiet Zone Establishment” letter to all official agencies involved.  After this notification has been sent, there is a minimum 21 day waiting period prior to the official establishment of the Quiet Zone which is when the train horns will begin refraining from sounding as per the Quiet Zone regulations. Train crossings will continue to activate the gate crossing closures with warning bells.  Note that Train Engineers will still have the authority to sound the train horns in emergency situations as deemed necessary.
