Cincinnati officials are studying a plan to make it quieter for some residents who live in neighborhoods with a lot of train traffic.

Train engineers are required to blow their horns one-quarter mile before each roadway crossing. 

It’s the same pattern each time, two long blasts, followed by a short and then another long one. 

Since sound travels, some residents hear it a lot especially when there are several crossings located close together.

Construction on Cincinnati's newest fire station is already underway in Westwood.  A groundbreaking ceremony was held Thursday. 

Officials say it will improve public safety and residents say they hope it will spur other economic development.

The new Station 35 will sit on Harrison Avenue near the intersection of McHenry. 

The 18,000 square foot facility will have 4 bays for equipment and will replace the 105-year-old location about a mile and a half away.
