courtesy of the City of Inver Grove Heights • Three railroad crossings in the Concord neighborhood will become quiet zones, where conductors are no longer required to sound their horns, in order help improve quality of life in the area, following a June 11 Inver Grove Heights City Council vote. A crossing in the 105th Street neighborhood could become a quiet zone if the city can find help in funding the roughly $250,000 worth of work required for the designation.
