Silencing Tulsa's Downtown Train Horns
Tuesday, May 2nd 2006, 2:15 PM CDT
A portion of the city of Tulsaâ€™s third penny would bring some silence to downtown.
The package includes money to install railroad gates that completely block the road when a train approaches. With traffic blocked - the trains would not have to blow their horns.
Developers have told the city the noise was discouraging people from living downtown. T
he gates, at five intersections along 1st Street, will cost $750,000.
