NewsObituariesTown Talk Stock Show Schedules Hernandez

Earlier this week, the TXDOT Signal Crew based in Lubbock installed two new school zone lights on Main Street. The new lights are solar-powered and radar-controlled and are linked to the two lights on Highway 60. City Manger Lee Davila said that since we have a new 20 mph speed limit there will be a small “warning” period for drivers. However, the new speed limit will be strictly enforced to ensure the safety of school children crossing the street.
The TXDOT crew members were Bryan Davis, Ernie Garcia, Nick Coffman, and Gary Moore. They are responsible for installing traffic lights in the 17 county area that stretches from Happy down to Denver City. See more installation pictures on the back page of the Friona Star.
