RAILWAY CONSTRUCTION ADVISORY
FEC has indicated that, as a result of their maintenance of tracks and switches, train engineers may blow their horn if workers are near the tracks
WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. (June 19, 2018) -- The City of West Palm Beach learned yesterday, after fielding phone calls from concerned residents, that there might be increased frequency of train horns along the Florida East Coast (FEC)-Brightline railway between 15th Street and Forest Hill Boulevard, even though a railway quiet zone remains established in our city.
FEC has indicated that, as a result of their maintenance of tracks and switches, train engineers may blow their horn if workers are near the tracks. This construction may last for up to 90 days.
As the City does not have oversight over the railway, the schedule for construction and maintenance activities along this corridor is controlled exclusively by the railroad. Still, the City felt strongly that this information was important to share with our community, as neither the City nor our residents had been made aware of the construction activities.
For more information, please contact the Florida East Coast Railway at 1-904-538-6100 or email@example.com.
