In an effort to keep motorists safe and prolong the life of a parish throughway, police jurors approved a lower speed limit for one Webster Parish road Tuesday.
Lake Road off U.S. Highway 371 between Sibley and Heflin will be 45 miles per hour for its entire five miles once signs are installed this week declaring such.
The change in speed limit was made on the suggestion of District 11 juror Steve Ramsey during the road committee meeting.
Jurors also approved filling potholes on Northeast 5th, Weatherton, Northeast Natchitoches, Northwest 2nd and Southeast 4th Streets in Sibley. The town will pay the jury for the repairs.
Parish crews will also make repairs to some Dixie Inn streets to be paid for by the village.
