Loud Train Horns May be a Thing of the Past for Gautier

Loud train horns usually heard at railroad crossings could be a thing of the past for some Gautier residents.

Community leaders and residents are looking to possibly establish a quiet zone near several railroad crossings in the community. There was a meeting held Tuesday evening to discuss the issue. Residents were able to voice their concerns on whether the quiet zone is needed.

Gordon Gollot, Mayor of Gautier, says, "What we’re looking at is trying to develop quiet zones in the city. It is a very long process. It is an expensive process and you have to go through and evaluate all your crossings and then you have to deal with the railroad to make sure that you’re not eliminating their process of moving trains through the city."

Similar efforts have been discussed in Pascagoula and Ocean Springs.
