PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” PennDOT District 10-0 has granted tentative approval for Punxsutawney Borough Council to lower the speed limit to 35 mph from 45 mph on Route 119 (Indiana Hill).
Tuesday, during a meeting of councilâ€™s Public Safety Committee, Borough Manager Ben White said last year, council requested that PennDOT perform a traffic study on Route 119 between the bridge over Mahoning Creek to the bridge over the Mahoning Shadow Trail, so the speed limit could be changed from 45 mph to 35 mph, in order to transition to the 25 mph speed zone.
