The City of Washington is adding two radar speed signs on Dallas Road.

The solar-powered signs were approved at Monday night’s council meeting. People who live in the area were concerned about how fast drivers were going.

“We fully expect somewhere between one to four miles per hour average speed reduction,” says Public Works Director Ed Andrews. “That would take the average today of 33 or 34, and should bring that closer to the posted 30 mile per hour speed.”

According to IDOT, nearly 3,000 drivers use the road daily. The city hopes to have the signs up by Spring.
