A Line trains’ horns are back in Park Hill for the next six weeks or so

It’s a temporary measure due to construction.

Heads up Park Hill residents: Expect to hear train horns starting this week, and up to five more weeks afterward.

The A Line trains are sounding the horns as a safety precaution at the crossing gate at Smith Road and Dahlia Street while the city builds a stormwater detention system nearby at the Park Hill Golf Club, according to a city press release. Because of increased activity in the area, the trains will sound the horns during working hours until the end of January or when work near the rail line is complete.

Normal work hours will be Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Saturday to Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Expect night work from Dec. 9 to Dec. 12 from 12 a.m. to 4 a.m.
