CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Cheyenne city officials say they're almost finished redesigning a railroad crossing to make that part of town quieter for guests in nearby hotels.

The city is preparing to install a median on Southwest Drive where the street intersects with some train tracks. The median will prevent anybody from driving around the railroad crossing gates when the gates are down. That will eliminate the need for trains to blow their horns every time they approach the crossing.

The railroad crossing is the busiest and noisiest crossing in Cheyenne. The same part of town has several hotels. Local officials say they worry that train horns are waking up hotel guests in the middle of the night.
