Speed limits may drop on 15 county roads
October 8, 2020
COLFAX — Public Works Director Mark Storey recommended county commissioners lower speed limits on the first of a list of county roads in a meeting Monday morning, Oct. 5 .
The suggestions came out of five speed zone studies on 50 mph roads. First would be a drop to a 35 mph limit on Sand Road, because of driveways and sight distance. Next, a new 40 mph limit on Becker Road and Cashup Flats Road - from U.S. Highway 195 to state Highway 23 - as well as a new 35 mph limit on part of Elberton Road and 30 mph on Draper-Brown Road.
