SPRING LAKE PARK –Spring Lake Park is taking another step to calm traffic through a residential area. There are already speed warning signs along 81st Avenue near University Avenue. In some places residents have put up their own reminder signs to motorists.
Now, the city council has taken action to remove heavy truck traffic in a short area of 81st Avenue. A new ordinance prohibits trucks over 10,000 pounds between University Ave. and Terrace Road. The city wanted to extend the restrictions further, but since it’s a state-aid road that would require returning money to the state.
