SPEED LIMIT TO BE REDUCED ON ROUTE 230 IN MADISON
Action affects section just west of Wolftown; signs will be posted Nov. 17

CULPEPER — The speed limit on a section of Route 230 just west of the village of Wolftown in Madison County will be reduced to 45 miles per hour following a speed study performed by the Virginia Department of Transportation.


The speed limit reduction from the current 55 miles per hour was requested by the Madison County Board of Supervisors and will affect a 0.35-mile stretch of Route 230 immediately west of the current 45 mile-per-hour zone through Wolftown. The reduced speed limit was deemed appropriate due to increased commercial traffic and to increase safety by reducing potential conflicts with a secondary road intersection and private entrances on that section of road.


The new speed limit will become effective when signs are posted on Nov. 17.
