City of Jenks raises speed limit on West Main Street
If your daily commute includes driving down Main Street in Jenks on the west side of Elm Street, you might have noticed a change in the past couple of weeks.
The City of Jenks changed the speed limit from Koa Street traveling west to U.S. Highway 75 was raised from 40 to 50 mph.
The change was made at the request of the Jenks Police Department, who patrols the area daily.
However, after several complaints from Jenks citizens in the area, the City of Jenks is going to drop the speed limit on that route to 45 mph.
One of the complaints from Jenks residents, who reside in that corridor was with school buses dropping students off on Main Street, 50 mph was too high.
