Driveway Permits


Speed Limits

The purpose of a speed limit is to provide for the safety of all highway users. To meet this purpose a speed limit must be acceptable to the public and be enforceable by police.

By state law, speed limits on county roads are set by the Michigan State Police after a joint traffic study with the road commission.

For more detailed information on this subject, the Houghton County Road Commission has three booklets which explain the process of setting speed limits.
