The Town of Four Oaks will become a Railroad Quiet Zone. Effective at 12:01am Wednesday, March 3rd, trains will no longer be blowing horns as they approach and travel through Town.
According to the town’s Facebook page, Baker Street, Main Street and Church Street railroad crossings meet all Federal Railroad Administration regulations to be a Quiet Zone. All three crossings have quad gates with power outage safety indicators.
Four Oaks officials urge everyone to pay close attention to the railroad tracks. For walkers, pay attention to the gate crossings. You should always look before crossing the tracks.
