The Town of Gibraltar decided Feb. 1 to lower the speed limit from 35 to 30 miles per hour (mph) on Gibraltar Bluff Road. 

The decision came after multiple residents expressed concerns about drivers going too fast on the road. In recent years, because more houses have been built in the neighborhood, more people have been biking and walking on or near the road.

Although some residents want the speed limit reduced from 35 to 25 mph, Wisconsin state statutes require a speed study to be completed before a speed limit can be reduced by 10 mph or more. The town agreed to conduct a speed study in the future, likely during the summer, when traffic flow increases.
