(KSL News) -- Poplar Grove and Glendale residents are cheering today because they don't have to hear blaring train horns anymore.

A new quietzone between 7th West and Redwood Road means trains can only blow their horns for an emergency.

The horn used to warn people that a train was approaching, but new safety measures now quietly take care of that.

Officials caution people to be extra careful around the train crossings because even one accident along the route could jeopardize the quiet zone.
