Speed limit changes adopted on South Whidbey roads

The Board of Island County Commissioners approved changes to the speed limits on Glendale, Lancaster and East Harbor roads at a special meeting Tuesday in Freeland.

Commissioners also agreed to eliminate a stretch of parking space along Ferry Dock Road in Clinton.

A 225-foot stretch of Ferry Dock Road will be used as a 20-minute parking/loading zone, but parking farther south along the road is now prohibited.

On Glendale Road, the speed limit has been changed to 25 mph about a quarter-mile before the road closure barricade on Glendale Road.

The speed limit on East Harbor Road has been changed from 50 mph to 40 mph between Passage Way and Ashley Loop.

The existing 25 mph speed limit on Lancaster Road has been extended from its intersection with Woodard Avenue to the Lancaster Road-Wahl Road intersection.
