ASK YOUR GOVERNMENT: What's the speed limit on Columbia Road overpass?


Each week, Herald reporter Charly Haley answers your questions about local government, laws and other local topics.

Q. What is the speed limit when going either north or south over the Columbia Road overpass? The signage is confusing. Is it 35 mph south until you get to the 40 mph sign further down the road? Going north, is it 35 mph until you start coming down and then slows to 25 mph? I just would like people to slow down as they drive over the overpass.
