(JACKSON CO.) - A fatal wreck nearly three years ago and other recent activity on a county road near the Shieldstown Covered Bridge have prompted county officials to reduce the speed limit.

The three-member Jackson County Board of Commissioners recently amended an ordinance to lower the maximum speed on County Road 300N from 55 mph to 30 mph.

That speed limit is for the road in Hamilton Township beginning at County Road 200N and extending 1,688 feet northeast.
