6. Twentieth Street & River Drive - PARTIAL OVERNIGHT WHISTLE CESSATION ACHIEVED

Primarily operated by: SRY
Safety audit complete: Yes
Design complete: Yes
Construction status: Complete
Whistle cessation process: Step 8

Comments: A gate has been installed at the crossing to support nighttime cessation by Southern Railway. Southern Railway had been in discussions with the federal regulated railways to have them follow suit, but they have not agreed, and will only implement cessation with the closure of the crossing or full signalization. The City will continue to monitor conditions and review options to obtain full cessation.
