RTD has had blare the horns while also have flaggers at all 11 crossings for the past two years because the gates were malfunctioning.

That problem has since been fixed.

If the request is approved, the areas along the A-Line will become quiet zones. The approval could come as soon as the end of August.

  1. RTD can lower the volume of these trains significantly and still be in compliance with federal regulations. This can be done in a matter of minutes and improve the quality of lives for those affected by the noise. Not sure why RTD does not implement this change immediately
