Railroad Quiet Zone Update
I met with the engineer, Riverside and North Riverside on January 5, 2007. The engineer has done the calculations and has determined that a "barrier" median needs to be put up at the Harlem Avenue and Cermak Road crossings with the Canadian National railroad tracks.
A barrier median is simply a six inch curb.
The next step will be for the engineer to contact the Illinois Dept of Transportation and Canadian National, which is supposed to take about six months.
I will report on the quiet zone, hopefully, this summer.
