Traffic to be altered for Quiet Zone project in Tiffin Staff




Tiffin, Ohio — As part of the City of Tiffin’s Railroad Safety and Quiet Zone Project, beginning the week of March 15, 2021, traffic patterns will be altered via lane restrictions on both East Market and East Perry Streets between Greenfield Street and the CSX Railroad.

The Greenfield Street cut through to East Perry Street also will be fully closed for a period of time during this project.

Motorists and pedestrians are advised to travel through the construction limits with caution.

The city says the Quiet Zone Project will significantly reduce the amount of noise pollution created from the large volume of trains that pass through the city on a daily basis. Upon completion of the project, five of the seven crossings that currently require the trains to blow their horns within the City of Tiffin corporation limits will remain open — Nelson Street, Wall Street, Clinton Avenue, Market Street, and Perry Street.

The project is expected to last through July 2021.
