Reminder of Changes to Lincoln Roadways

Posted:

With Lincoln's new school also comes new changes to its roadways.

Three extra deputies along with police officers patrolled the area this morning to monitor traffic.

Something new you may notice are the new crosswalks.

They're solar powered and are activated as children approach the street.

Officials urge drivers to be on the lookout and drive carefully, especially now that school has resumed.

"The speed limits are reduced. They used to be 45 on Lincoln Road, and it's now 35 and then 66th Street used to be 55 and it reduced down to 45 and to 35. The crosswalks might be hard for some people to see so maybe, especially when school is open, you know, pay extra attention and if the crosswalk is flashing, look for any small children," says Ben Newman, Lincoln Police Officer.

Another reminder - - the speed limit in town is 15 miles per hour at all times even when school is not in session.
