Bushland School Zone in Place

Some area high school students are getting help from flashing lights for the first time on campus. 

Following nearly four weeks of delay, Tx-DOT installed temporary school zone signs today at Bushland High School.

The solar-powered flashing signs reduce the speed limit along FM 23-81 from 65mph to 55mph, then 35 miles per hour. 

District Superintendent John Lemons says the flashing lights warn drivers to slowdown from 7:15 to 8:30 in the morning and 3:30 to 4:30 in the afternoon.
