In reference to a letter from Dr. Poole back in September of 2014 requesting a
speed limit decrease from 50 mph to 35 mph beginning at the Sportsman Lodge
extending to Trails End Road.

This appears to be a seasonal issue so Traffic Operations will conduct a
traffic engineering study, as required by law, and will forward the
recommendation to the Vermont traffic Committee, who will make the final
decision.

The Engineering study will be scheduled in the spring/early summer months when
camps are most active. A speed cart will be set up when available for a
rental price billed to the Town.
