What's going on with Strub Road's speed limits and sign by NOMS?
Let's answer these two questions in separate sections:
1. Why is the speed limit different on each side of Strub Road?
The legal speed limit, both easterly and westerly on Strub Road between Campbell Street and Hayes Avenue (Ohio 4) has always been 55 mph, according to Erie County engineer Jack Farschman.
2. What happened to the speed limit sign heading west?
Construction workers apparently never replaced the sign once they took it down to resurface the road some months ago.
"After checking for signage, we found there was none on the westbound lane immediately west of Campbell Street," Farschman said about a week ago.
Crews fixed the problem and installed a new sign — all prompted by this Mailbag question.
"Thank you Ashley," Farschman said.
