Loveland, Ohio – On February 26, City Engineer, Cindy Klopfenstein,  said that during the first nine months of 2018, the City experienced 33 reported vehicle crashes into the low clearance, train trestle on Karl Brown Way in Historic Downtown Loveland.* To reduce the number of wrecks and traffic congestion they cause, the City hired Choice One Engineering to complete a safety study of the area.

Based on the study, Klopfenstein reported on her evaluation of the findings. This LOVELAND MAGAZINE TV video is Klopfenstein’s report to City Council.

* From the minutes of the Council meeting: “City Engineer, Cindy Klopfenstein, noted that during the first nine months of 2018, the City experienced 33 reported crashes at the train trestle on Karl Brown Way.” We should have paid more attention to what the City Engineer actually said, rather than what the minutes reported she said. Klopfenstein says in the video, that the 33 crashes occurred from 2016 through the first 9 months of 2018, not just the first 9 months of 2018.

    • From the minutes of the Council meeting: “City Engineer, Cindy Klopfenstein, noted that during the first nine months of 2018, the City experienced 33 reported crashes at the train trestle on Karl Brown Way.” So, we should have paid more attention to what the City Engineer actually said, rather than what the minutes reported she said. Thank you Jen for pointing out our error.

      • It was reasonable of you to expect that the city would accurately transcribe such a detail! If you were quoting the minutes then it’s the city’s error – a significant one they should not have made!
        Thanks for your reporting on this very annoying and disruptive problem – for those impacted by the traffic problems these incidents cause, 33 of these preventable crashes in the same number of months is WAY too many!!!
