Canadian National quiet zone extended

Updated: November 15, 2012 9:31PM

Trains will be prevented from sounding train horns between Diehl Road in Naperville and Batavia Road in Warrenville along the Canadian National Railroad.

The new quiet zone restriction begins Monday, Naperville officials said Thursday morning.

The new quiet zone designation on the rail line, formerly the Elgin, Joliet and Eastern Railway, requires locomotive engineers to refrain from using train horns unless deemed necessary for safety purposes.

The cities of Naperville, Aurora and Warrenville, along with DuPage County, worked to establish the quiet zone. In 2009, a separate quiet zone was established along the CN line from Liberty Street in Aurora to 111th Street.
