And Establishing Wilkinson Street, King Street/Scofield Drive, Rollins Street and Princeton Street (Highway-Rail Grade Crossings) as the Orlando North Quiet Zone.


On August 24, 2011, a Notice of Intent was provided in accordance with the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Railroad Administration’s final rule regarding the use of Locomotive Horns at Highway-Rail Grade Crossings.
