[ARCHIVED] Quiet Zone Update: 66th Street is permanently closed


  • 66th Street at the railroad crossing just east of Shellmound Street is permanently closed as of 4/19.
  • There will continue to be minor traffic control/delays as various phases of construction occur to complete all sidewalk, traffic signal, and RR gate arm work that is necessary at the 65th and 67th Street crossings throughout April/May.
  • New traffic signals at 67th/Shellmound and 67th/Hollis are expected to be installed and active in Spring/Summer 2023.

The project began construction in June 2022 and was expected to be complete in 6-9 months. An additional 6 months was added to the project timeline due to delays with Union Pacific's scope of work that needs to be installed concurrent with City's scope of work. The City expects to be complete with construction in Summer 2023. 

Establishment of the “Quiet Zone” is expected to occur in late 2023 - early 2024.
