Train whistles to blow less often in downtown Phoenix

[Source: 3TV] — Those who live near the railroad tracks in downtown Phoenix will finally get some peace and quiet by the end of the month.  Engineers will blow train whistles less often between Third Avenue and Fourth Street.

Developers and homeowners raised a quarter million dollars to help establish the “quiet zones.”  The trains will no longer blast their horns every time they approach a railroad crossing, but to keep everyone safe engineers will honk if they see someone on the tracks.
