It's hard to believe for some, but the 2015 summer break will be officially over bright and early tomorrow morning when hundreds of Edmonson County students will make the trek back to school for the 2015-16 school year.
School buses will be on their routes all throughout the county tomorrow and Sheriff Shane Doyle is urging everyone to use extra caution. "When buses are back on the road, sometimes it takes a little getting used-to," he said. "Remember, if you try to pass a bus with their stop sign engaged, the bus drivers will get your plate number and we will charge you with a crime. The safety of our kids is our top priority."
If you will be traveling on KY 743 (Chalybeate School Road), you'll want to allow as much as 20 extra minutes for your commute as road construction has been in full swing all summer long. Traffic is narrowed to one lane in the area near Chalybeate Church. This will cause delays throughout the morning as temporary traffic lights are in place. Tomorrow won't be the time for you to run late on your morning route. Construction is planned to be complete by the end of September.
Sheriff Doyle is also reminding drivers that school zones will have a 25mph speed limit in the morning and officers will be out and about.
