NO SPEED LIMIT CHANGE ON 12TH STREET IN FENNIMORE
The Fennimore Common Council had
recently decided to change the speed
limit on 12th Street, west of Lincoln Avenue.
The Council had approved a change of
the speed limit from the current
25-miles an hour to 20-miles an hour.
But City Clerk Margaret Sprague says
the city has learned it must first do an
engineering and traffic speed study on
12th Street before it can change the
speed limit. The city will also get input
from the Fennimore Police Department
on the issue. Sprague says the city will
also look at getting two portable speed
signs to put along 12th Street, and use the
data from those signs into the decision
on whether or not to change the speed
limit. According to Sprague, any decision
to change the speed limit more than likely
won’t happen until next Spring.
