Portion of 4th street in Joplin to see speed change
Change comes after safety study
JOPLIN, Mo. — A speed limit change approved tonight as well.
The change will impact East 4th Street from Pennsylvania Avenue to Murphy Boulevard. The change will reduce the speed from 35 to 25 in that zone. David Hertzberg says that new signs should be up by the end of the week.
David Hertzberg, Public Works Director says “From safety, to sustainability of the crossing, and for the driver and pedestrians, as time goes on we anticipate more pedestrian use, you’ve got the trails in the area and you’ve got activity in the downtown area.”
