Authorities Enforcing Speed Limits on Detour


 With Highway 166 east of Baxter Springs closed for realignment, the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office is reminding drivers to obey traffic rules on detours and secondary county roads.

 Deputies have been enforcing traffic laws for those not traveling the posted speed limit or utilizing the approved detour, which is from Baxter Springs, north to Riverton, east to Galena, then back south to the interstate, or vice versa.

 Authorities say there will continue to be an increased law enforcement presence during the construction project.
