Railroad Quiet Zone Analysis

The SCTPO is coordinating an analysis to assess the applicability of “quiet zones” at specific locations along the Florida East Coast (FEC) rail corridor. This analysis is to address concerns of local jurisdictions about increased warning horn noise along the railway due to the frequency of proposed passenger train travel by All Aboard Florida (AAF).
