Speed humps to hit street soon
Speeding on Midland Avenue may send speeders for a ride.The Glenwood Springs City Council approved a measure last week to test speed humps in four locations on Midland Ave. between eighth and 27th streets.The speed humps hopefully will slow down fast drivers and help move traffic, Councilman Larry Beckwith said.Speed humps are not as high and are longer than the more traditional speed bumps. This combination allows drivers who travel at the posted speed limit of 25 mph on Midland to drive over the humps practically without noticing they are there, Beckwith said.Beckwith doesn’t know when the humps will go in, but it will be soon.”If they work, we are quite sure other neighborhoods throughout the town will want something similar,” Beckwith said.”If they work, we are quite sure other neighborhoods throughout the town will want something similar,” Beckwith said.
