Press Release: New School Zone Signage

The city council passed an ordinance in January updating the sign designating the school zones and speed limits. 

The ordinance added 13 new stop sings at 4 intersections around the Intermediate School on Norfolk at Mears and Lake and west Primary School on Shelton at 7th and 8th Streets.  

The new signage also designates the school zone as 15 MPH from 7AM to 5PM during school days.

Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the City of Chadron’s Street Department, the new signage is up around the public schools in Chadron.    

The Chadron Police Department will begin enforcement of the new school zone signage immediately.  We understand it will take a small period of time for motorist to adjust to the new changes, citations won't be issued until the start of next school year in the fall.  

If there are any questions in regard to the new changes, please feel to contact the Chadron Police Department.
