Windsor to Hold Quiet Zone Celebration February 24

The Town of Windsor will celebrate the successful implementation of the Quiet Zone project at 2 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24, at the Art & Heritage Center.

The celebration will include a ribbon cutting ceremony and brief remarks by local leaders. A light reception will follow.

As a designated Quiet Zone as of December 27, Windsor no longer experiences train horns throughout town except in cases of emergency — a solution to a longstanding community issue.

“The Quiet Zone Project is an example of democracy in action,” said Mayor Kristie Melendez. “Our residents brought forward their concerns and town leaders listened.

“We were able to not only find a solution for the noise issues, but we also increased safety measures at railroad crossings throughout town.”

To achieve a Quiet Zone designation, the town worked through an extensive certification process that included safety upgrades at 13 of the 14 total crossings as an alternative to the train horn safety warnings.

"Safety is our most important value,” said Kevin Shuba, OmniTRAX CEO. “In order to achieve a Quiet Zone designation, it takes a lot of work, a lot of time and a lot of investment, and we applaud the efforts of local leaders who made this project happen."

The Town of Windsor received a $3.3 million TIGER V federal grant to help complete the project.

The Art & Heritage Center is located at 116 5th Street.
