Speed Limit Change Approved on Webster Avenue

The speed limit on Webster Avenue in Plymouth is going to change. The Plymouth Board of Public Works and Safety approved a request last week to lower the speed limit.

Several residents signed a document asking for the reduction of speed as children and residents attend functions at the Webster Center and motorists have been seen speeding down the road. The speed limit is 30 mph, but neighbors in the area report much higher speeds. Drivers also rev engines to get up to that speed and faster as they travel down the road which disturbs neighbors.

After some discussion, the members approved the request to reduce the speed limit to 25 mph. Street Superintendent Jim Marquardt will be locating the proper areas for sign placement. Plymouth officers will be doing traffic enforcement in that area as well.
