Route 219 Now 50 MPH Speed Limit?
Did you see the electronic signs on the main routes that indicated a reduced speed limit?
On my ride home on Monday on 219, I noticed the signs telling drivers that the speed limit was reduced to 50 MPH.
Channel 2 reports that the speeds have also been reduced to 50 on a few other major roads like 33 and 290.
Officials are urging people to slow down because there may be some patches of ice.
There's no timetable for when they bring the speed limit back to 55.
It took me by surprise and I noticed that is was hard to maintain 50 MPH after being used to the 219 being 65!
