Western Flower Mound Train Quiet Zone Update

Town staff recently had an on-site meeting with the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) representatives. The next step in the process is a meeting with the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). The Town has also been informed that this quiet zone application will have to go through the Public Authority Application (PAA) process. This process is required due to the over 40 mph speed limit on FM 1171 (Cross Timbers). Unfortunately, the UPRR reps also informed staff that the process is currently taking up to 16 months to complete in Washington, D.C.  Staff is working with TXDOT for review and approval of the request, which is being required prior to meeting with the FRA rep.  Staff is hoping that meeting can take place in February. The FRA rep will also provide any additional information as to items we need to complete prior to the PAA process. Under the assumption that we will be able to do all of the requirements of the FRA and UPRR, there is still another approximately 5-6 month process after that before the quiet zone becomes active. Those timelines do not account for any additional work that either the FRA or UPRR would require to take place at this location. Staff is continuing to move through the process but the implementation could take up to almost 2 years before it becomes active. Staff will continue to provide updates at this location.
