Train Horns In Superior Return For The Time Being

Residents of Superior may have noticed the sound of something in the air that they haven’t heard for a while:  train horns.

The railroad crossing at 28th Street between Banks and Elmira used to operate as a “Quiet Zone” under authority from the Federal Railroad Administration.  As such, trains weren’t required to sound their horns – thanks to the lights and crossing arms at the intersection.

However, a deadline to allow the crossing to continue operating that way expired on June 24th;  The City of Superior has applied for an extension to allow the crossing to be remain without horn blasts, but they still haven’t heard back from the FRA.  Until they do – the trains are required to go back to sounding their horns.

Superior has 18 other railroad crossings that operate under the Quiet Zone regulations – and as of now, they are still able to operate that way.
