VANDERBURGH CO., Ind. (WFIE) - Drivers will now see new school speed zone signs on State Road 65 in Vanderburgh County.

Deputies say parents and staff at Cynthia Heights raised concerns about traffic and speeds in front of the school.

The sheriff’s office then worked with INDOT to get school zone signs and flashing lights.

Tuesday, the signs were installed.

The speed limit is now 35 mph when the lights are flashing.
