Town asking state for assistance to reduce speed limit from Exit 3 to Transfer Station from 45mph to 40mph
The Town is in the process of requesting state approval, guided by Federal Highway Administration guidelines, to reduce the speed limit on Clark and Beaver Dam Roads from Exit 3 running north to just beyond the Manomet Transfer Station.
Accidents on that stretch have been up slightly over the course of the last decade and the area is significantly more populated than when the original 45mph limit was set. 30mph speed limits in the the area of the highway ramps would remain unchanged.
