Speed Limit Ordinance Amendment Approved on First Reading


The Marshall County Commissioners have approved the first reading of an ordinance amending speed limits on two roads.

The speed limit on Lincolnway West will be reduced to 45 mph. It was suggested to the highway department that the area is congested and a lower speed limit would eliminate a potential traffic issue. The road did not have a posted speed limit so by law the limit was 55 mph.

The ordinance also covers 3rd Road between Birch and Beech Roads. The speed limit will be reduced to 35 mph.

The changes will be advertised and the speed limits will not go into effect until the final reading of the ordinance in October.
