Press Photo by Katherine Grandstrand City officials are working to create a railroad quiet zone within and near Dickinson’s borders. Recently, an engineering firm suggested $1.5 million worth of safety improvements to help end mandatory horn blowing at crossings like this one, near the Patterson Lake Recreation Area, shown Saturday.

Dickinson quiet zone improvements estimated at $1.5M


Campers at Dickinson’s Patterson Lake Recreation Area are warned that the camper sites are located near the train tracks and that it can be loud.

“At the get-go they don’t actually understand how loud that is,” said Matt Mack, facilities operations manager for the Dickinson Parks and Recreation Department. “They do say it would be a lot better campground without the train coming through.”
