Speed limit reduced in two Chesterfield locations
The Midlothian Exchange reports that the speed limit along 2 miles of Hull Street Road (Route 360) has been reduced.
From Winterpock Road to Woodlake Village Parkway the limit has dropped from 55 mph to 45 mph and fromWoodlake Village Parkway to Fox Club Parkway it dropped from 55 mph to 50 mph.
According to a fall 2008 VDOT traffic study, the majority of drivers on Hull Street Road between Winterpock Road and Fox Club Parkway were already traveling at slower speeds due to traffic congestion. However, to ensure all motorists are driving at a consistently safe speed, VDOT enacted the lower speed limit. “If there’s an improvement we can make that will help drivers get to where they need to go safely, then we will make a change,“ said Chesterfield Residency Administrator, Dale Totten P.E.
This is good news for the people of Chesterfield. Lowering speed limits tends to cause fewer accidents and makes it easier to catch those who are speeding. The number of wrecks in that vicinity should decrease significantly.
