Executive Director Greg Stuart Sits Down With

WLRN to Discuss Quiet Zones

Our Executive Director Greg Stuart sat down with WLRN's Michael McEwen to discuss the issue of removing quiet zones along the Brightline corridor. According to WLRN, Broward County’s portion of the corridor has become the country’s deadliest railway per mile, prompting a federal review – and possible removal – of a horn-free zone that could soon target Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties as well. Find out how the Broward MPO is working with the Federal Railroad Administration to address this issue. Click here to learn more.
