Police to do extra patrols in downtown Scottsbluff

The Scottsbluff Police Department is informing the public of an upcoming traffic enforcement saturation patrol in the downtown business district.

With completion of the downtown Broadway re-paving project nearing, the department will utilize grant funding obtained from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety to enforce vehicle and pedestrian traffic laws in the areas between Avenue B and 1st Avenue and between Railway Avenue and 27th Street.

The effort will occur from Monday July 22nd, 2013 through Sunday August 4th, 2013. This effort is intended to educate motorists and pedestrians in the area and to enhance safety through these busier summer months.

The department also wishes to thank the public for their care and caution throughout the Broadway construction project.
