GOSHEN — For businesses and residents along a stretch of 9th Street that borders an active railroad, the wrong side of the tracks is anywhere within earshot.

The corridor between Lincoln Highway and Goshen’s southern city limits sees 15 to 20 trains a day, each required by law to blow its horn for 15 to 20 seconds at each of the 18 crossings. That adds up to 1.8 hours of horn-blowing a day in a corridor that’s less than 3½ miles long, according to city Civil Traffic Engineer Leslie Biek.
