Speed limit change suggested


A Kelso Street resident appeared at Electric City’s last council meeting to suggest that if Grand Coulee adopted an ATV ordinance, he would like to see the speed limit between the two cities dropped so those owning all-terrain vehicles could travel on SR-155.

Making the suggestion was Ron Pulsipher, who joins a handful of Grand Coulee residents who have been making the same pitch to their city council. That council has researched the idea using Electric City’s ATV ordinance as an example of what Grand Coulee might do.

The ATV ordinance was on Grand Coulee’s council agenda Tuesday night (May 16), but too late to report this week if it was passed.

The ATV owners would like to see the speed limit constant from the southern entry to Electric City all the way through Grand Coulee.

Currently, the speed limit is 35 mph through Electric City, then 45 mph from Coulee Playland to near Four Corners where it changes again, this time to 30 mph, the speed limit that continues to Coulee Dam.

City officials from Electric City and Grand Coulee didn’t know if either city was interested, or whether the state Department of Transportation would be interested in changes to the speed limit.
