Railroad quiet zone coming to Mesa

By Mike Sunnucks | Rose Law Group Reporter

The city of Mesa is establishing a new railroad Quiet Zone to reduce noise from the Union Pacific Railroad line in the area of Southern Avenue and Dobson Road.

The effort is an area aimed for new development and redevelopment projects.

The Quiet Zone involves train horns not being sounded unless there is an emergency or need to warn animals, vehicles, and persons on tracks.

The city has also worked with the Federal Railroad Administration and Arizona Corporation Commission to upgrade railroad crossing and adjacent roads and intersections in the new zone.

Quiet zones have been established in other cities including Tempe, Chandler, and Phoenix. They reduce noise for nearby businesses.
