TUSCUMBIA — Colbert County commissioners have approved speed limits for several roads in residential areas in the west end of the county.
County Engineer Jeremy Robison said the commission agreed to set 25 mph speed limits on Red Road, Buzzard Roost Road, Creekside Drive, Roberts Boulevard, Spring Valley Lane and Whitaker Avenue.
Robison said state law requires the county commission to vote on setting or changing speed limits.
"If it's not posted, it's 45 mph for a two-lane county road," he said. "Anything different requires a vote of the county commission."
Robison said there were no posted speed limits on those roads.
