Construction In School Zone

Posted: Updated:

The school zone on U.S. 281 in Windthorst is expanding on Thursday.

Sign crews will move one school flasher a quarter mile south of its current location to warn northbound motorists of the school.

The change was made after the Windthorst School District asked the Texas Department of Transportation to look at the safety need.

TX-Dot agreed and decided to expand the school zone inside the city.
