ST. CLOUD - A northeast St. Cloud railroad crossing could soon be a lot quieter. On Monday night the city council will hold a public hearing and consider a plan for a quiet zone at 4 1/2 Street Northeast.

The council delayed the project last summer because the center median was proposed to be 80 feet long, which would have impacted the entrance to Pythons Recycling. The new proposal shortens the median to 60 feet, which Pythons says they can live with.

The cost for the Railroad Quiet Zone at 4 1/2 Street Northeast is about $115,000.
