Council Passes Legislation Requesting the Federal Government Establish Quiet Zones in Neighborhoods with Railroad Crossings

Council Passes Legislation Requesting the Federal Government Establish Quiet Zones in Neighborhoods with Railroad Crossings

NEW ORLEANS - Today, the Council passed a resolution (R-21-309) requesting the Department of Transportation Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), which governs the safety of the nation’s railroad system, to establish a process for quiet zones in an effort to provide relief from the routine sounding of horns to nearby local communities. This process only allows public authorities to create quiet zones, meaning surrounding neighborhoods and residents desiring them are dependent upon local leaders to complete all the necessary steps, which include financing, installing necessary warning signs and required signage, and adequately notifying all involved stakeholders.
