Mishawaka considering changing speed limits for first time in two decades


Mishawaka is considering adjusting speed limits in the city.

It’s been 20 years since changes have been proposed to speed limits in Mishawaka on key thoroughfares, according to the South Bend Tribune.

The city council will be holding a public hearing and vote at 7 p.m. Monday on the proposed changes. Those changes include:

  • Making the entire stretch of Grape Road 40 mph, rather than the 30-40-30 variation it has now.
  • Dragoon Trail, which City Director of Engineering Gary West says is often used “like a bypass”, would go from 30 to 35.
  • Day Road would see some changes as well.

An effort to increase safety at school zones is also a part of the plan, as is future discussion of other speed limit changes.
