Train Horn Noise, TriMet Open House

Please mark your calendar for this Open House next week. Several people in our neighborhood are concerned about train horn noise with the expected arrival of light rail passing through our neighborhood. If you would like to get involved, attend this meeting and contact the HAND board.

Train Horn Noise

The Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Project is exploring how horn requirements may apply to light rail trains that share a freight rail right-of-way.
