How will you pay for the Quiet Zone?
The budget for the project is $3.5 million, which already is in place through a previous bond issue. City staff are working with engineers from OHM Advisors to develop a preliminary budget and plan to bid out the improvements in early April. Work and improvements on railroad property will be done by the railroads via a reimbursable agreement.
