Tx-DOT Says School Zone Signs on the Way

Bushland High School has been without a school zone since doors opened in 2005.
   

In September Tx-DOT told us school zone signs would be up in October.    
  

But as of today those signs where still not in place. We asked Paul Braun at Tx-DOT about the delay, he tells us a backlog of projects is why the signs are not up yet.   "It takes a while to make these signs, we have to build them and then we have to get them out there, but we have four of the six built and we're gonna get them out in time for classes to start on Monday after Thanksgiving."

The solar powered flashing signs will reduce the speed limit along FM 23-81 in front of Bushland High from 65 to 55, then 35 miles per hour.
   

These signs are only temporary ones.. And Braun could not predict when permanent school zone markers would be installed...But he says the current signs will be in place until then.
