Speed alert: Butteville Road drivers slow down near Donald
A 40 mph speed zone will be added just south of the Donald city limits, an effort that officials hope will ensure drivers slow down and won't enter the city while traveling at excessive speeds.
This posting will result in a 40 mph transition speed zone between the existing 55 mph and 25 mph speed postings.
The zone change was announced Tuesday by Marion County Sheriff's Office in conjunction with the city of Donald and Marion County Public Works.
The signs are scheduled to be posted Thursday, according to Marion County Public Works.
The new speed zone will begin about 1,000 feet south of the city limits and extend north to the existing 25 mph speed posting at the city limits.
The sheriff's office will continue to educate drivers and enforce traffic laws in and around the city of Donald, the press release stated.
