SPEED LIMIT REDUCED ON ROUTE 230 IN STANARDSVILLE
Safety concerns lead to 25 mph limit
This reduction from the current 35 miles per hour speed limit was requested by town officials and approved by the Virginia Department of Transportation due to the increased number of entrances and driveways along this residential/commercial thoroughfare within the town limits.
Signs have been placed advising motorists of the new speed limit.
