Quiet that Train!
We've had enough! The train honks for 2 continuous minutes when it crosses I37 until it passes the Alamodome. It also honks near I35 and Hackberry before entering the train yard. See a map at www.trainquietzone.com. There are more than 30 trains a day, and more than half of these pass at night. Our quality of life has been affected and sleep interrupted. Other quiet zones have gone into effect. Now it's our turn!
There is a quiet zone now in effect for this train as it passes Lone Star and parts of King William. The train honking disturbs Denver Heights, Alamodome Gardens, Dignowity Hill, Lavaca, Downtown, and parts of King William. Here's the kicker: the Inner City TIRZ already reserved $800,000 for a quiet zone from Essex to Sherman Street. We want this plan executed!
Please sign this petition if your quality of life has been affected by the train. City Council needs to hear our concern!
