By David Bray - email

LAKE CHARES, LA (KPLC) – The Lake Charles City Council voted Wednesday to lower the speed limit on two roads around the McNeese State University campus.

The decision follows the death of a McNeese student who was hit and killed by a car as she walked to class.

The speed limit on Sale Road between Ryan Street & Common Street and on Common Street between Sale Road and McNeese Street will be lowered from 35mph to 25mph from 7:00am to 4:00pm on school days.
