Speed limits to change on thousands of streets
BATON ROUGE- City work crews will begin replacing speed limit signs in thousands of neighborhoods with brighter reflectors and slower speed limits after a vote by the Metro Council Wednesday.
The council approved an agenda item to lower the speed limit from 30 to 25 on streets that do not have lane striping. WBRZ News 2 first reported about the possible change Tuesday.
The Department of Public Works said it will take two years to replace nearly 12,000 signs that need to be switched.
