New speed limits imposed on Tongue Canyon Road
SHERIDAN — Sheridan County commissioners voted to impose two speed limits on Tongue Canyon Road for the first time during its May 18 meeting.
The county will impose a 40 mph limit from the road’s beginning near the town of Dayton to its intersection with Amsden Road, Muller said. The second segment of the road, from Amsden into the canyon, will have a 30 mph limit.
The new speed limits follow a study performed by county engineer Ken Muller at the request of Sheridan County commissioners, who heard from concerned citizens about a perceived speeding problem on the road. Upon beginning his study, Muller was surprised to realize there was no limit in place.
