Speed Limit Change In Silver Lake

The speed limit in Silver Lake is changing.   The 30 mph speed limit will extend back to Pizza King on the north end of town, and the speed limit on the south end of town will drop from 50 to 45 mph.  The town asked the state highway department to perform a speed limit analysis several years ago and it was determined at that time that no change was needed. After four-year-old Logan Heeter was struck and killed by a passing truck in June, the highway department was asked for another speed limit analysis.  It's not yet known when the changes will take effect.
