If you are coming to, or leaving Nacogdoches take special care that you are observing posted speed limits. Construction continues on what will one day be I69 in the near future. Citizens and police officers have noted that leaving and coming into town on HWY 59/South Street has become unsafe due to the speed of vehicles in the area.

This weeks Focused Traffic Enforcement will be conducted on South St (59 South). Based on officers' observations and input from the community we are going to place additional police resources in the area to slow traffic down to the posted speed limits. Remember this area is under construction. Please slow down and obey all traffic control devices. As always leave earlier, drive slower, and get there safe!

*The Focused Traffic Enforcement Program was implemented to bring additional police resources to areas of concern within the city. We determine those areas by listening to our citizens and observations by your Officers. We hope by bringing attention to the problem using social media we can gain voluntary compliance before Officers begin focusing on the area. The #1 goal of this program is to increase the overall safety of all our citizens.*

So take it easy out there no matter where you are on the future I69 route. Let the people not obeying the speed limit get the tickets, and don't join them.
