(KSL News) Residents can sleep easy if they live near Utah Transit Authority's Frontrunner tracks.

Thirteen cities along the commuter rail route have agreed to create a 44-mile-long "quiet zone."

The Deseret Morning News reports if it's established, the zone will be one of the longest in the country.

Trains would no longer blow their horns at street crossings to warn drivers and pedestrians. Instead, cities would pay to install other safety features such as medians and crossing arms.
