3 counties' speed limits change

Staff report

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has changed a number of speed limits across the region, the district announced Monday.

n On U.S. 45 and Lebanon Church Road in McCracken County:

A school zone has been added to the two roads near Community Christian Academy, south of Lone Oak. 

The speed limit along Lebanon Church has been lowered to 35 mph from U.S. 45 extending eastward to Lebanon Church. After a flashing beacon is installed, a 25 mph school zone will be established in front of the school. 

A 45 mph speed zone has been established along U.S. 45, extending 650 feet in each direction from the Lebanon Church Road/Lovelaceville-Florence Station Road intersection. The speed zone resulted from a speed study requested by the McCracken County sheriff and the school.

n On U.S. 60 in Livingston County:

In the Burna community, a 45 mph speed zone has been extended eastward by about a quarter of a mile. The 45 zone now extends from mile point 20.45 to mile point 21.13. 

New speed limit and speed limit ahead signs have been placed. The speed limit extension came as a result of a speed study requested by the Livingston County sheriff due to the residential nature of that section.

n On U.S. 641 in Calloway County:

A 45 mph speed limit has been added at the north edge of Hazel.

The quarter mile extension of 45 mph, with the elimination of a passing lane, aids the transition to and from the 35 mph speed limit in downtown Hazel, according to the district office. Previously, the speed limit there went from 55 to 35 mph. 

The 45 mph transition section extends from 250 feet north of Miller Street to Lavender Street. The speed limit change came as the result of a speed study requested by the Calloway County sheriff.
