Speed Limit On Mullan Road May Permanently Change

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

The speed limit on Mullan Road, between Broadway St. and Reserve St. could be permanently changed to 35-miles per hour. The city's committee of the whole took up the issue on Wednesday at Missoula's City Council Chambers.

The speed in the area used to be 45-miles-per hour, but was temporarily decreased during a speed study. The study looked to see if the area saw an increase in accidents, injuries or deaths, because of the high number of pedestrians and traffic on the stretch of Mullan.

Now that the study is over, the committee is recommending the city adopt a resolution requesting a permanent change in speed. The issue now goes to city council
