(Speed Limit lowered)….The Board of Supervisors took the action Tuesday.
They held a public hearing to discuss the proposal before taking the action. The proposal was to reduce the speed limit on Orchard Road, between Haven Road and Edwards Road, from 55 miles per hour to 45 miles per hour. They also discussed seeking assistance from the state to reduce the speed limit to 25 miles per hour, and other action to slow the traffic in the area. Residents along Orchard have been trying to get some type of action to slow the traffic since 2017.
