Quiet zone agreements signed in Shoreview, expected in Little Canada

Quiet zones will be created at crossings along a stretch of railroad tracks just over 2.5 miles long, going from southern Shoreview down the west side of Little Canada at a cost of nearly $2 million, funded by the state. Safety improvements like crossing arms will be installed at the crossings, making it no longer a requirement for crossing trains to use their horns.

Railroad should complete work by early 2016
Almost a year after the Minnesota Legislature set aside nearly $2 million intended to lessen the noise at railroad crossings in Shoreview and Little Canada, deals are in place to move forward with railroad quiet zone plans.
Shoreview approved deals with the state and the railroad at its May 4 council meeting and Little Canada is expected to do the same during a rescheduled council meeting on May 11, after the deadline for this edition of the Bulletin.
