The Washington County Sheriff’s Office will be increasing patrols on I41/ 45 during peak travel times beginning this week and lasting through the summer travel season.
The increased patrols will focus on aggressive driving and vehicle driving complaints.
The main detour route for I41/45 is State Highway 175.
State Highway 175 is currently under construction and closed, in the south end of Washington County.
The patrol deputies will also be focusing on quickly mitigating traffic crashes on I41/45 to avoid secondary crashes/ back-ups, especially in the south end of Washington County.
In the past the Sheriff’s Office has given 48 hours to owners of disabled vehicles to remove their vehicles.
In an effort to eliminate potential hazards, patrol deputies will be immediately removing any vehicles that become disabled on I41/45 from County Highway Q to State Highway 60, while State Hwy 175 is under construction.
