Union Pacific has been contacted by the City regarding the increase in train horn noise and concerns from the neighborhoods regarding the noise.
The Notice of Intent (NOI) for the Quiet Zone was submitted in the fall of last year. The City received comments from Union Pacific and is now addressing access issues for properties adjacent to the track. COSA Senior Transportation Engineer-Traffic Engineering Manager Bianca Thorpe is coordinating with those property owners to come up with a solution. Once that is completed, Notice of Establishment (NOE) will be sent for final approval by UPRR and Federal Railway Administration. For further information, contact Ms. Thorpe in the Transportation & Capital Improvements department at 207-1484.
