Franklin County will increase speed limits on two roads in Eastpoint

 The Franklin County Commission has agreed to increase the speed limit on two roads in Eastpoint.

Franklin County Commissioners on Tuesday agreed to increase the speed limit on Carroll Street and Twin Lakes Road in Eastpoint from 25 miles an hour to 35 miles an hour.

The speed limits were lowered on those roads in 2017, but District 1 Commissioner Ricky Jones said the lower speed limits have not taken care of the speeding problem on those roads.


Because the roads are county owned, the county doesn't need state approval to make the change and the speed limit will be increased as soon as the county road department installs the new signs.
