Quiet Zone Update

Jessica Gordon with the City of Riverside provided this update.

Quiet Zone SignService along the Perris Valley Line (PVL)  began on June 6th, but there are still a few steps that need to take place before a quiet zone can officially be established.  This includes execution of a maintenance agreement between the City and the Southern California Regional Rail Authority (SCRRA) – which is going to be presented to the City Council for consideration on June 21st.  Other steps include verification of all installed improvements, and updating CalTrans’ crossing inventory system.

The Perris Valley Line includes seven crossings within the City – four of which (Mt. Vernon Avenue, Blaine Street, Spruce Street and Marlborough Avenue) are part of the PVL Quiet Zone project.  Current projections indicate that this Quiet Zone should be in effect this Fall.

I hope this answers your question.  Please let me know if you have more questions.

  1. The densely populated Mt. Vernon Avenue Perris Valley Line crossing has TWELVE daily crossings starting at 5am until 7pm. During each crossing repeated ear-piercing BNSF locomotive horn bursts are disturbingly audible inside family homes startling residents, some elderly, infirmed or children. Although efforts have begun, a Quiet Zone is imperative significantly sooner than Fall.

  2. Tuesday’s City Council meeting has the formal Quiet Zone Request on the consent calendar.
