The project encompassed two days, July 1, 2016, and July 4, 2016, designated as the peak travel days for the holiday period. Interstate 35 was the roadway designated for this project and troopers were assigned 20-mile sections of the interstate from the Clinton County line to the Iowa state line.
As a result of the project officers issued 159 citations and 278 warnings. There were four additional arrests made, including four drug arrests and one misdemeanor warrant arrest.
“Troop H trooper’s vigorous enforcement efforts this July Fourth weekend helped keep everyone traveling through Troop H safe,” said Captain James McDonald, commanding officer of Troop H, St. Joseph.
