Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Project Community Forum

Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Project Community Forum on Train Horn Noise

Tuesday, April 7, 6-7:30 p.m. Llewellyn Elementary School Cafetorium (6301 SE 14th Ave, Portland OR 97202)

The Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Project includes new light rail tracks parallel to existing railroad tracks. Freight trains on the railroad tracks are required to blow their horns as they approach street crossings. The Project is exploring how these requirements may apply to light rail trains, including a number of options to minimize train horn noise through use of wayside horns, waivers, or the creation of "Quiet Zones." TriMet is engaging the services of Rail Control Limited (RCL), a firm that specializes in helping communities minimize train horn noise.
Please join TriMet, RCL and the cities of Milwaukie and Portland at this community forum to learn more about options for minimizing train horn noise.
