New speed limit ordinances proposed

San Juan County Council will discuss proposed revisions to speed limits and two new ordinances regarding speed limits in the county after the lunch break at its Tuesday, February 13 meeting. One ordinance would authorize the creation of official county maps showing the speed limits. The second ordinance contains the maps.



Recommendations:

Revision 1: (Argyle Ave)Traffic study suggests that the road is currently signed with the appropriate speed limit. Consider supporting a project to add designated non-motorized improvements to the Priority Array in this area.

Revision 2: (West Side Rd) Support with the following revisions:

Raise the speed limit from 20 mph to 25 mph along the southern portion of West Side Road (MP 8.35 though the >20 mph advisory curve).

Raise the speed limit from 20 mph to 35 mph from the along the northern portion of West Side Road (>20 mph advisory curve through MP 10.42).

Revision 3: (Crescent Beach Rd) Traffic study suggests that the road is currently signed with the appropriate speed limit.

Revision 4: (Pt Lawrence Rd) Traffic study suggests that the road is currently signed with the appropriate speed limit.

Revision 5: (Enchanted Forest Rd) Traffic study suggests that the road is currently signed with the appropriate speed limit.

Revision 6: (Lopez Village) Support revision in consideration of the surrounding land use.

Revision 7: (Lopez Rd) Support revision in consideration of the surrounding land use.

Revision 8: (Cross Rd) Traffic study suggests that the road is currently signed with the appropriate speed limit.

Revision 9: (CenterRd)Traffic study suggests that the road is currently signed with the appropriate speed limit.

Revision 10: (Fisherman Bay Rd) Traffic study suggests that the road is currently signed with the appropriate speed limit.

If the council decides to move forward, the next step is to set a public hearing.

    For Lopez does this mean the only possible upcoming changes would be in Lopez Village and on Lopez Rd?

    I think you might want to consider lowering the speed limit on Fisherman Bay Rd from it begins on the North and to reduce the speed limit on Dill Rd. There seems to me to be no reason for it to be 45 MPH.

    Think SLOW after all it is Slowpez.
