Closed railroad crossing causes traffic troubles in Germantown

One major intersection is shut down right now posing BIG problems for parents and students of one Shelby County high school.

Railroad crews shut down Poplar Pike at Southern last night and it will remain closed until five o-clock tonight.

Poplar Pike is a main road for those going to Germantown High School.

The closing of Poplar Pike will force parents, students, and buses to approach the school using the west entrance.

Extra signs are up this morning and extra officers will posted to help patrol the area.
