The Daily Herald reports Lehi is sponsoring an application to the Federal Railroad Administration to create a quiet zone.
Trains are usually required to sound a warning horn at every intersection they approach.
For residents, enduring the blasts a few times a day is bad enough. But 60 trains a day becomes insufferable.
That's the number of trains possible when the Provo to Salt Lake commuter rail opens this fall.
To minimize noise, cities along the route have been upgrading safety features at crossings. The upgrades are required before the federal agency will allow engineers to lay off the ear-piercing warnings.
