White Salmon Seeks Speed Limit Reduction

The White Salmon City Council is asking the Washington State Department of Transportation to reduce the speed limit for a portion of Highway 141 from Jewett Boulevard and Garfield to milepost 3 from 35 miles per hour to 30.  The one-point-three mile stretch of road has multiple curves, and pedestrians and bicyclists use the east shoulder of the roadway as a loop trail.  Citizens complained this summer when rumble strips were removed during work on the highway, and the state has replaced them.  But Mayor David Poucher says growth along that stretch of highway led the City to ask for the speed limit reduction.  Poucher noted the City is willing to pay for new speed limit signage if the state gives the go ahead to make the change.
