Arlington mulls some additional lowering of speed limits

Must Read

A pedestrian-safety initiative or a war on vehicles? You make the call.

Arlington County Board members are slated to hold a public hearing in September to reduce the speed limits on portions of Fairfax Drive and 5th Road South, another in a string of efforts to cut vehicular speeds on county roads.

The segments in question:

• Fairfax Drive from Arlington Boulevard to North Barton Street, where the proposal is to reduce the current 30-mph speed limit to 25 mph.

• 5th Road South between South Carlin Springs Road and the Fairfax County line, where the proposal is to reduce the current 35-mph speed limit to 25 mph.

County officials conducted engineering studies on the two roads before proposing the changes.

County Board members on July 16 are slated to set a public hearing on the proposal for Sept. 17. The cost of swapping out speed-limit signs is anticipated at $500 for each length of roadway.
