Edmond Quiet Zone


Creation of quiet zones along railroad corridors is a relatively new development. In 2006, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) issued 49 CFR 222 and 229, Use of Locomotive Horns at High-Way Grade Crossings. The purpose of the rule is to mandate a federal requirement for the sounding of locomotive horns at all public highway-rail grade crossings. The rule also created a methodology by which communities could create quiet zones. In accordance with the rule, locomotive horn sounding is not required if each crossing is equipped with Supplemental Safety Measures (SSM). SSM’s are safety measures that have been determined by the Federal Rail Administration to adequately compensate for the lack of a locomotive horn.

Edmond has eleven grade crossings that will be equipped with SSM’s. On March 6, 2019 the Edmond City Council approved contracts with the Burlington Northern Railroad for Quiet Zone improvements in the amount of $2,649,385. The City council also approved a contract with CTC in the amount of $216,257 for the preparation of construction plans for the quiet zone improvements on the City streets that approach the railroad tracks.

There are two components to the Quiet Zone project:
  • The first component is the infrastructure work to be done by BNSF forces on their railroad tracks. The railroad signals are being designed by BNSF. Their ordering process is currently under way and they expect materials to arrive in late 2019. BNSF anticipates the work to be completed by the end of April 2020.
  • The second component is the work to be designed and constructed by the City on the 11 streets that cross the tracks. The design engineer CTC/Freese Nichols are working on the final construction plans. The anticipated start date is March/April 2020. The current estimate for the City work is $800,000.
