Speed study requested: City officials have asked for a state study to determine whether the 40 mph speed limit on Woodland Drive from Myrtle Avenue to the north city limits should be lowered.
City officials say a 30 to 35 mph speed limit may be more appropriate because of increased development and medical facilities in the area. The state controls the speed limit on all roads and streets regardless of whether they are inside a city. Upon completion of the study, the state Department of Transportation will decide whether to lower the speed limit.
