when are they gonna lower the speed limit on rt. 47 going thru s. grove? when we have more accidents and deaths...? every other little town on rt. 47 has a lower speed limit. the semis & gravel trucks already drive way too fast down that highway...not to mention cars. i've lived in s. grove for 24 yrs & have witnessed this way too many times.

I agree with what you are saying. What good are speed limits when the are not enforced? The State controls Route 47. Did anyone notice that new crosswalk button that was installed a week later at Cross Street? Not that that is going to help anything. There are no safe ways for pedestrians to walk along route 47. It is as if the village and state ignore the people that live south of Route 56. How many times has the roads around prestbury been resurfaced in the last 10 years?
We need a pedestrian overpass and sidewalks! The BNSF bridge is in terrible condition. When do we get the same treatment they got on Orchard road?
