Quiet Zone at Rodebnurg Rd. Railroad Crossing Established
Roselle Train Station
The quiet zone for the Rodebnurg Rd. railroad crossing in Roselle officially went live on Friday, September 9.

As part of the establishment of the quiet zone, traffic channelization devices (vertical tubes that prevent vehicles from driving around lowered gates) were installed along the middle of Rodenburg Rd. on both the north and south sides of the crossing. Horns within the quiet zone may still be used in the case of an emergency and to comply with federal or other railroad regulations.

Train horn quiet zone studies were conducted on the railroad crossings in Roselle at Rodenburg Rd., Roselle Rd., Prospect St., and Park St. in 2014. The Village Board agreed to pursue a quiet zone at the Rodenburg Rd. crossing in 2015, based largely on potential costs and necessary restrictions. Further evaluations will continue at the remaining crossings. For additional information about train horn regulations, visit the Village's website
