Missoula City Council Asks MDT To Reduce Speed On Rattlesnake Dr

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

Missoula City Council decided to move forward with their attempt to permanently reduce the speed limit on part of Rattlesnake Drive.

At Monday night's city council meeting, a final vote was made on an ordinance requesting the Montana Department of Transportation permanently reduce the speed limit from 45-miles per-hour to 35, in the area between Aspen and Cornerstone Drives. This comes after a speed study showed reducing the speed would help prevent accidents in the area.

Last week, city council adopted an ordinance requesting the speed limit be reduced on Mullan Road, as part of the same speed study.
