Good Behavior Day: demonocracy21: This is a partisan issue too?It's a geography issue. It goes through an influential neighborhood that insisted it be treated as a parkway. So when it was built, they did a lot of landscaping and put the speed limit at 45 mph, even though it's limited access. The people that live north and south of that section and actually have to drive on it want it treated as an interstate. The issue comes before the state legislature every year with no change.
