Are any crossings under review for closure?

Yes. The City of Tipp City and the Tipp City Police have recommended looking into closing the Plum Street and German Street Crossings due to the dangerously high crossings there. It is not safe for some longer vehicles, such as Fire Trucks, to cross. Nothing has been decided and no decision will be made to actually close a crossing until the Quiet Zone report has been submitted to the city.
