After potential misunderstandings and talks with county officials, Grayson County has decided to withdraw the “Stop and Identify” bill that was passed earlier in the month. The bill, which was passed at the urging of Grayson County Sheriff Norman Chaffins, who posted about the withdrawal on his Facebook page, was seen as a possible civil rights issue by some groups. Sheriff Chaffins went on to say that the department would “… treat those we encounter in our everyday duties like we would want our own family treated if they were stopped by police officers.”
Lane configuration has been altered in regards to the US 31W bridge project in West Point. Southbound traffic has been shifted into the southbound outside lane across the bridge. This is to give traffic more room on the bridge until the next phase of construction begins. The next phase will require closure of the northbound side for demolition and reconstruction. The project is expected to be completed by the end of May.
