Chicago Subdivision: New Trackside Signs

At three points along the Chicago Subdivision I've seen a couple of new trackside signs pop up. Just east of the Berwyn Metra station on both sides of the right of way there's a yellow rectangular sign that reads "F-45" which is the speed limit for freight trains. Both signs are positioned for westbound traffic. And at two points in Downers Grove there are two small white square signs on the same pole where the top sign has "W" (whistle) and directly underneath has "QZ" (Quiet Zone). The Chicago Subdivision is in a quiet zone between McClure Rd in Aurora and Chicago. These signs are also positioned for westbound traffic. Never seen such signs before.
