Did Town Council consider other options?
Town Council has also considered installing additional gates at all three crossings, as well as wayside horns, which put the horns at each crossing, rather than on the train.

In addition, Town Council has been provided an overview of a variety of combinations that could be considered. A few of these included: turning Second and Third streets into one-way streets; installing wayside horn systems that place a horn at the crossing to use in place of the horn on the train; and installing medians along Second and Third streets. Traffic impacts, emergency operational impacts and higher implementation costs were the general reasons these were not pursued further.
