Notice from Pct. 1 Commissioner Terry Cook - Train Horns Print
Saturday, 27 May 2017 07:38

Heads Up!  According to Capital Metro:

MetroRail construction along the tracks will require MetroRail and freight trains to use their horns.  The sound will affect the neighborhoods along FM 620, Parmer Lane, Lakeline and Avery Ranch from May 20th to July 2, 2017. Capital Metro will work to ensure minimal disruption to these neighborhoods.  Cam Metro apologizes for the inconvenience.

MetroRail is replacing the rail, ties and ballast in the Lakeline, Parmer and Avery Ranch area.  When crews are working on this project, train and work equipment engineers will be sounding their horns to warn the on-track personnel of their approach.  In many cases, train and work equipment engineers will also sound their horns when they are approaching the grade crossings in this area as well.  Under normal circumstances and operation, engineers do not sound their horns at the crossings in this area because they are in a quiet zone.  However, because the quiet zone is in a construction zone, Cap Metro will be sounding the horns for the safety of their on-track and train crews.
