Appeals Court Sides with State

By  | 

Speed limits on Saginaw Street and Grand River Avenue in East Lansing could be going up again. Tuesday, the Michigan Court of Appeals overturned a March Ingham County Circuit Court ruling which allowed the city to stop speed limit increases of ten miles per hour.

They were first raised in February, then lowered in March after the ruling. Now the state has the power to raise the speed limits again.
F/Lt. Thad Peterson of the Michigan State Police's Traffic Services says the state will wait to change the signs back until the city of East Lansing decides if it will file an appeal or not.

The City of East Lansing has until the end of January to appeal to the State Supreme Court. Councilmembers are expected to take up the issue at their next meeting.
