Bill Raises Winnipesaukee “Broads” Speed Limit
March 31, 2011
Concord Monitor: A bill bumping up the speed limit in the “Broads” on New Hampshire’s Lake Winnipesaukee to 55 mph has passed the state Senate.
The bill had originally sought to repeal speed limits on the lake—45 mph during the day, 30 mph at night—that were made permanent by a law passed last year. But a compromise amendment approved on March 23 keeps the speed limits in place elsewhere on the lake while increasing the daytime speed limit to 55 mph in its wide, central section.
The bill passed by a 13-11 vote in the 24-member Senate. The amended version had won the approval of the Senate Transportation Committee by a 3-2 vote.
