Ballinger Police Reminding Citizens of School Bus Safety
Mar 08, 2015   10:00 PM

Ballinger Police have recently found several motorists violating the laws prohibiting the passing of school buses that are stopped while loading or unloading students.  When a school bus is stopped with its red warning lights displayed, vehicles traveling in both directions are required to stop until such time as the warning lights are no longer displayed.  The only exception to the requirement to stop in both directions is when a physical barrier divides the lanes of traffic between the lane occupied by the bus and the opposite lane.  An example of this physical barrier is a dirt center median, such as the median along Hutchings Avenue in South Ballinger. 

Violators of the law will be cited, and charges filed as a Class C Misdemeanor.  First offense fines range from a minimum of $500 to a maximum of $1000.  Subsequent offenses may be filed as a Class B misdemeanor, with punishment to include jail time. 

Ballinger Police urge motorists to use extra caution around school buses and look out for the safety of young people.

Ballinger Bridge Construction Underway
Mar 21, 2015   11:59 PM

Work is underway and will continue for several months on a 14.6 million dollar project to widen and improve bridges on main thoroughfares in Ballinger.  J.H. Strain and Sons, Inc. will perform the work to widen the existing bridges and replace the existing bridge decks over Elm Creek, The Colorado River, and the South Orient Railroad and FM 382.

The existing bridges were built between 1958 and 1963.  According to Tex-Dot, the bridges need to be wider to accomodate  the increased truck traffic through Ballinger.  The Elm Creek and Railroad bridges  will be widened 12 feet and the Colorado River Bridge will be widened one and one half feet. 

Motorists are urged to reduce speeds and use extra caution as work continues on the affected structures.
