The Overland Park Police Department's Traffic Safety Unit will conduct High Visibility Traffic Enforcement on Wednesday, February 29, 2012, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, and will focus on US69 Highway from 119th Street to 87th Street.
Officers will enforce all traffic violations, but will be paying particular attention to those violations related to aggressive driving, red light violations and speeding.
This particular stretch of US69 Highway is currently labeled as a construction zone because of the ongoing work being done to improve the roadway. KDOT has advised they are still working in that area and need to shut down lanes on an “as needed” basis. Construction along that corridor will continue into 2013 as they work on the section between I-435 Highway and W. 119th Street.
Allow yourself a little extra drive time in these areas and some additional space between your vehicle and the one in front of you.
