Corinth Studies Railroad Quiet Zone

The city of Corinth is looking at creating a quiet zone along the Norfolk Southern Railroad line that operates east-west freight train traffic through the town.
Mayor Tommy Irwin tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that the city is requesting a preliminary assessment by the Federal Railroad Administration.
A quiet zone means trains will no longer routinely sound their horns when approaching roadway-railroad street level crossings.
Irwin says Corinth has six crossings that would be included in the quiet zone from east to west.
Irwin says a second freight line operated by Kansas City Southern Railroad operates a north-south route, but has significantly less impact on businesses and residences in the city.
