Residents want drivers to slow down on Union Valley Parkway

Some residents living off Union Valley Parkway say the parkway is turning into more of speedway. They would like to see the city put in a four way stop to slow, traffic, but city engineers say it's meant to be a main artery and there isn't enough traffic to warrant a four-way stop.

Tonight, the Santa Maria City council will decide how fast you can drive on the Union Valley Parkway.

Without a posted speed limit, drivers have been expected to obey the "prima facie" limit of 55 mph.

City staff will recommend a 45 mph speed limit between Blosser Road and Broadway. The County portion of the road between Hummel Drive and Bradley Road is posted at 50 mph.

Phase III of the project is anticipated to begin this year. Once completed, the road will run east and west, connecting Blosser Road to U.S. 101 in Orcutt.
