Many communities across the nation are trying to balance the negative impacts of train horn noise on sensitive neighborhoods while enhancing rail safety. New federal rules offer and support quiet zones as a solution. SRF is a nationally-recognized leader in quiet zones. Our expertise includes developing quiet zone assessment studies, crossing design and implementation strategies. This work involves helping local governments gain cooperation from the railway companies for public safety and rail mitigation improvements. We do this by building on our relationships with federal officials and railway companies, which have developed through many years of close work.
