Editor: I was wondering if you or anyone knows why the speed limit on the new, improved, double lane Keystone Road is a measly 35 mph. all the way across? The drive from Eastlake to U.S. 19 is torture. I drove the limit the other day and seriously, I created a mile long back up with people honking and desperate to pass. The outside lane was passing me like I was sitting still. It was agonizing to poke along, but I followed the speed limit.
As I was creeping, just past Patriots BBQ, a police officer was writing a ticket. What’s the deal? Did Florida finally make Keystone a double lane to create a speed trap? The limit was faster when it was a pot-holed, rickety two way.
Why is the speed limit lowered to 35 on a new double lane?
