The City of Fort Collins filed a petition for a waiver of a portion of the Train Horn Rule with the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). On Friday, December 11 the FRA denied the petition. At the same time, in an unprecedented move, the FRA Administrator will establish a Fort Collins Working Group with the Federal Highway and Federal Transit Administration staff. The historic move will help develop solutions and recommendations for the City moving forward.
