The City of Louisville has been working on the installation of a railroad quiet zone which would include key crossings throughout the City (South Boulder Road, Griffith, South, Pine and Dillon Road) for the past couple of years. The City has over $3 million budgeted for the project. The purpose of the project is to reduce noise by creating a zone from Baseline to Dillon where trains will not blow horns as frequently. This requires the installation of safety improvements at each at-grade crossing. While design is complete and construction was scheduled to begin in 2019, there was a delay pending BNSF review and approval. BNSF has challenged the quiet zone improvements at the Colorado Public Utilities Commission, causing ongoing delays. Once resolved, we’ll begin construction.
