Manatee County Looking Into Changing Speed Limit on Lorraine Road
Manatee County staff has put together a proposal through the work of the Manatee County Traffic Engineering Division. The result would be a few changes to speed limits along Lorraine Road in Manatee County.
Here is a look at some of the Possible Changes:
A speed limit of 40 mph from University Parkway to Rangeland Parkway, which would be a rise of 5 mph from the current speed limit of 35.
Rangeland Parkway is just over a half mile north of State Road 70.
The speed limit from Rangeland Parkway to State Road 64 would decrease 5 mph to 45 mph.
The Manatee County Commission is set to vote on the new measures in April, and if they are approved, new signs will be posted in May.
These new recommendations were based on a range of factors, including: traffic volume, roadway geometry, access points, crash history, surrounding land uses, types of road users, and more.
