Increased speed limits proposed for 2 Greenwood roads

Motorists would be able to drive faster along two Greenwood roads under a new proposal.

Greenwood wants to increase the posted speed limits on Sheek Road on the east side and Honey Creek Road on the city’s west side. Traffic studies showed that motorists should be able to go up to 40 mph and that an overwhelming majority of drivers ignore the posted speed limits, community development services director Mark Richards said.

Speed limits would be bumped up to 40 mph on Honey Creek Road and 35 mph on Sheek Road if the city council approves the proposal.
