“You Drink and Drive, You Lose”
The Ralston Police Department recently participated in the national “You Drink and Drive, You Lose” campaign that ran from August 17 to September 3, 2018.  This special enforcement effort was paid for by a grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety.

Officers made (3) DUI arrests during this time frame.  One of these drivers BAC was .298 at 7:43 a.m. He had been arrested for a previous DUI just 11 days before he was arrested again by RPD.  Another DUI suspect was arrested for DUI, Refusing a Preliminary Breath Test, Refusing a Chemical Test, Obstructing a Police Officer, Open Container, and various traffic offenses. 

With grant officers working an extra 35.5 hours of overtime, as well as normal patrols, 88 citations were issued.  During this grant period, two parties were arrested on felony warrants, as well as nine others being arrested for misdemeanor warrants.  There were several additional charges during this period, including (6) Driving Under Suspension charges, (10) No Insurance charges, (2) Seat belt violations, (3) Open Container citations, (1) citation for Child Passenger Restraint Violation, and others.

Ralston Viaduct Lane Closures Began  Monday, May 22, 2017

Lane closures between “Q” Street and Harrison Street on 84th Street began May 22 to construct median cross-over pavement, according to the Nebraska Department of Roads.

These median cross-overs are necessary to route head-to-head traffic in the southbound lanes to facilitate the reconstruction of the northbound Viaduct over the railroad tracks. Traffic will remain head-to-head until this December. During the winter months, all northbound and southbound lanes will be open to traffic.

Hawkins Construction Company is the contractor on this project.
