Dubuque Road speed limit raised


EVANSDALE (KWWL) -- Drivers on the recently reconstructed Dubuque Road can now put a little more pedal to the metal.

Evansdale Mayor Chad Deutsch says the city council passed the ordinance raising the speed limit from 45 mph to 55 mph on Tuesday.

The new signs were put in place first thing on Thursday morning.

The speed limit was lowered from 55 to 45 some years ago after the inside lanes of Dubuque Road buckled, causing the road to be unsafe for higher speeds.

The nearly $900,000 reconstruction project was completed last week.
