Railroad quiet zones nearing completion in Hamburg

It's hurry up and wait for three quiet zones at railroad crossings in Hamburg.

The delineators that will keep vehicles from driving around railroad gates are installed at Pleasant Avenue and Lakeview Road, while some paving is needed at Bayview before the delineators are installed, according to town engineering consultant Michael Quinn.

The town must coordinate its work within the CSX and Norfolk Southern right-of-way with the railroads, who will station a flag person while the work is taking place, he said.

Quinn said there is about a week's worth of work left to do.

Quiet zones are federally regulated railroad crossings where trains do not blow their whistle as normally required, because of safety measures put in place, such as center medians that prevent vehicles from driving around a lowered railroad gate.
