On Monday, May 7, Brightline notified the Transportation Planning Agency that all quiet zone work for the supplemental safety measures, including "no train horn" signs, had been completed, with the exception of Boynton Beach. As a result, the City of Boca Raton submitted the required Notice of Establishment (NOE) for implementation of the Quiet Zone for the City of Boca Raton on May 9, 2018. This action has initiated the 21 day period for implementation.
