Abilene Police officers are out in force along US Highway 83 near Antilley Road.  Police began their Tuesday enforcement measures after numerous reports of drivers exiting at the off ramp and turning north against traffic on the service road, so they could get to Antilley Road.

Officers believe the closing of the off old Antilley Road off ramp nearest Abilene Regional Hospital a couple weeks ago may be causing confusion for drivers.  However police say they are ticketing drivers for driving the wrong way on a one-way street.

Drivers wanting to avoid these issues need to use the new Clack Street exit close to Sam's Club.
