BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Quiet zones along the Brightline Rail Line in Boca Raton will not be honored through Friday, as signal testing mandated by the federal government continues.

BocaNewsNow.com has received several complaints from readers who say they can’t sleep because the trains are so loud — and blasting their horns in the middle of the night. The good news: it’s temporary. The bad news: you may need to invest in a good pair of noise canceling headphones until the testing is done.

The affected crossings where noise is expected include Yamato Road, 40th Street/Spanish River Blvd.; NW 28th Street; NW 20th Street; Glades Road; NW/NE2nd Street; Palmetto Park Road; and Camino Real.

The noise continues through 2 p.m. on Friday, October 28th.
