Railroad Quiet Zone
Neighbors living near the train tracks in Berwyn, Riverside and North Riverside will be getting a little more peace and quiet.
U.S. Congressman Dan Lipinski, 3rd District, of Western Springs, will be joined by North Riverside Village President Richard Scheck, other local mayors, railroad officials, and residents to announce an agreement to establish a quiet zone in North Riverside, Riverside, and Berwyn. The event will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, March 16, 2009 at the North Riverside Fire Department, 2331 S. Des Plaines Ave.
Train whistles at all hours of the day and night have been a long-time problem for residents in the vicinity of the Des Plaines Avenue and 23rd Street rail crossing.
Lipinski helped successfully worked to negotiate this agreement with Canadian National Railway.
Funny, the Congressman never returned one email or phone call of mine these past three years beggin for his help. Happy the job is going to get done.
