Montana: Is 60 mph limit too fast for Highway 2? Some cyclists think so

Bill Fogarty, an MDT district supervisor in Butte, has talked with members of the Highlands Cycling Club about their concerns and says if commissioners make a formal request for a speed study, it will be sent to the agency’s traffic and engineering division.

There are numerous requests already pending, he said, so it could take six months to a year to have a study conducted, gather public comments and make any recommendations to the Montana Transportation Commission, which has the final say on speed limits.
