Crash Disables Wayside Horn At 35th And Adams

Trains will sound horns in quiet zone until repairs made

Train horns will be sounded in the railroad quiet zone in the area of 35th and Adams until the wayside horns at that location can be replaced. A railroad equipment shed at the intersection was hit by a car Monday, damaging the connection to the wayside horns. The intersection was closed Monday while gates and lights were tested and determined to be fully functional. The intersection was reopened Tuesday.

When Burlington Northern Santa Fe receives a replacement shed, Adams Street will be temporarily closed for installation. The connection to the wayside horns will be repaired as soon as the new shed is in place.

In a separate incident, a railroad crossing gate arm was hit by a truck early this morning on 33rd Street just south of Cornhusker Highway, and a lane closure is possible in that area today.
