Currently, the speed limit is 55 mph at the White River bridge, then lowers to 50 mph as you approach downtown.

Chief Moore says he asked for the request after he received a letter from the county's Solid Waste Management District. on Mitchell Road. He says there is a steady flow of traffic into the facility with around 170 residents visiting the facility daily.

The request will go before Bedford City Council at its July 10th meeting.
