County commissioners to hold public hearing for uniform speed limit on county roads
Those traveling with a leadfoot on Stephens County roads may soon have to find the brakes, as the county court is considering a uniform speed limit of 30 mph for select county roads. The county commissioners will hold a public hearing March 11 to receive comment from residents on the proposed change. These actions come a couple months after the county briefly discussed the concept in their first January meeting, as well as after what officials called numerous complaints from residents.
If the change goes through, this speed limit would not impact city, state or national roads and highways that go through the county. Those would stay the same as they are now. This order would target only county roads.
