The Highway Committee voted last week to leave the speed limit as it is on Blue Creek Road near Lynnville.
A petition had been received to have the speed on the road reduced to as slow as 25 or 30 miles per hour.
Superintendent of Roads Barry Hyatt said he had talked to residents on the road that did not see the need in setting the speed limit.
Several members of the committee felt that speed was too slow for a road with 20 feet of driving surface.
Some of the committee members said they may consider setting a speed limit on the road if the request were to come with a speed limit of 40-45 miles per hour.
Hyatt told the committee that depending on where roads are located, the speed limit when not posted can be as high as 55 miles per hour.
