HUDSON, Ohio - An Ohio man who got federal stimulus money to quiet train horns near his home says the request was a long shot that paid off.
- Greg McNeil made a request for $168,300 on behalf of his homeowners association. The project was one of 149 transportation projects the state selected to receive stimulus money - and
- the only one based on an application from a private citizen.
The money will be used to make safety upgrades at a railroad crossing so trains won't have to blow their horns when they pass.
- The noise has been an issue for homeowners who live in Hudson and Macedonia.
McNeil says he hopes the crossing project is finished by Labor Day.
