An update from Mayor McCarthy regarding the train horn / quiet zone compliance at railroad crossings in Waltham:

On behalf of the City of Waltham Traffic Commission’s vote and working in conjunction with Ward 4 Councillor John McLaughlin, Ward 5 Councillor Joseph LaCava and the entire City Council, I submitted an official request to the Federal Railroad Administration with a plan to address the safety issues and to allow the Quiet Zone to continue to exist at Waltham’s railroad crossings.  Once I hear from the Federal Railroad Administration I will update the public.
