White Bluff’s proposal to reduce the speed limit on Highway 47 at School Road during the mornings and afternoons was put on hold after the school and state took steps to improve the traffic situation. Public Works Director Jeff Martin told the town council Tuesday that since police Chief Mike Holman brought up the proposal last month, the Tennessee Department of Transportation has installed no parking signs along the shoulder of Highway 47 and officials at White Bluff Elementary School continue to “tweak” their traffic plan. “Like most years before, I mean at the beginning of the school year we have all the issues of the new parents and stuff learning the routines. And since last month, everything has really quieted down on that,” Martin said. The council had asked Martin and Holman to put together a more specific proposal for reducing the speed limit on Highway 47 just at School Road for about an hour in the mornings and afternoons to correspond with the peak of school traffic. But Martin said Holman determined the situation is improving and asked that the council hold off on taking any action unless it is needed in the future. Holman told the council that TDOT has determined the elementary school is too far away from Highway 47 to put a school zone on the highway.
