WASHTUCNA – Ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday break at Washington State University, the Washington State Patrol is stepping up traffic enforcement on state Highway 26.
Last week, digital signs were placed along the highway that connects Colfax to Othello, a route used by many WSU students who may be heading home for the Thanksgiving holiday and weekend.
The patrol also has extra patrols on the highway to encourage motorists to obey traffic laws.
The emphasis on Highway 26, as well as U.S. Highway 195 between Pullman and Spokane, will continue through Nov. 28.
