Council to take comments before vote to lower speed limit in school zones

Posted: Updated:

Blacksburg Town Council will also take public comments tonight on a plan to lower the speed limit from 25 to 15 around three elementary schools.

The proposal would lower the limit within 600 feet of Margaret Beeks, Gilbert Linkous and Harding Avenue Elementary Schools. The change would be in effect 30 minutes before and after the start and end of school.

The idea came out of a committee as part of the Safe Routes to School program.

The public hearing and vote will come during tonight's 7:30 p.m. meeting at the Municipal Building.
