The at-grade railroad crossing at Moonlight Road and Main Street will be a quiet zone in the near future. The designation will mean trains passing through the east side of Gardner will not be required to blow their horns.
David Greene, city public works director, said by the end of the month the crossing should receive formal quiet zone designation.
“We did have most of the physical attributes in place after the Moonlight project,” Greene said. “But we had to go through a process.”
