Speed limit being reduced near Shepherdstown park

June 11, 2008

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - After residents near Morgan's Grove Park have expressed concerns for years about the speed limit in the area along W.Va. 480, the Division of Highways has agreed to reduce the speed limit on the road from 55 mph to 40 mph, according to a news release.

Residents have long been concerned about the speed limit on the road near the entrance to Ledge Lowe subdivision and Morgan's Grove Park, according to the release from Platinum PR.

Local developer Peter Corum and others communicated the concerns to the Division of Highways, which studied the area and decided to reduce the speed limit, the release said.

Corum and two other developers are building Town Run Commons, a development near the park that will have a planned, mixed-use community centered on the arts, with designated living space, working space and open space.
