New speed limits take effect on edge of Paradise town limits

The town of Paradise is doing their part to curb speeding on the Skyway.

Last month, the Paradise Town Council adopted a revision to the engineering and traffic survey, changing the speed limits on certain parts of the Skyway from 50 to 45 miles per hour.

That includes Neal Road to Princeton Way, and Princeton Way to Skyway Crossroads (westbound only).

For one Paradise resident who visits her mother that lives in between east and westbound lanes of the Skyway, anything helps.

"So I have to put the blinker on way ahead that you normally would just to get people to recognize that I'm going to make a turn, and watch that rearview mirror all the time," Peggy Bailey said.

Town Engineer Marc Mattox said there have been 19 injury crashes in this stretch of the Skyway over the last 10 years.

Two months ago, driver-feedback signs were installed on other parts of the Skyway as part of a major safety project.
