Placeholder Image
Warren County Commissioners will be considering speed limits on four roads during their monthly session in June, which is this coming Monday.A resolution, if it passes, will set the speed on Smartt Station Road at 35 mph, Henegar Road at 35 mph, Tenpenny Road at 35 mph, and Short Mountain Road at 45 mph, as recommended by the county Highway and Bridge Committee.Smartt Station, Henegar and Tenpenny roads are connected. While considering a measure to lower the speed limit on Smartt Station from an unposted 55 mph to a posted 35 mph, Road Superintendent Levie Glenn suggested adding the second two.“After I got to looking at Smart Station, I’m sure the road goes all the way to Old Well Road and I think we need to take Henegar Road and Tenpenny Road, that’s a branch off Smartt Station,” said Glenn. “It stops right where Tenpenny and Henegar come together, but Smartt Station has the right of way and keeps going.
