What are the needed steps to create a quiet zone?

The Town and Union Pacific will be implementing improvements to the roadway crossings at Second, Third and Fifth street crossings. The improvements include new track, extended crossing platforms, additional crossing gates, sidewalk construction and new curb and gutter along with additional signs and striping. Both the Town and Union Pacific will be constructing these improvements over the course of months, due to the complex nature of the work and scheduling constraints. Once the improvements have been constructed, the Town notifies appropriate regulating bodies that the quiet zone has been established, and the train horns will “go silent."
