Below is an announcement from Palomar Mountain Traffic Safety Team 1/9/2019:
"This has been a long process, about a year long. I'm not going to write a book about the entire process. Last Spring San Diego County Traffic Advisory Committee ordered a Traffic Engineering Study for both South and East Grade Roads here on Palomar Mountain. The road study recommended speed limit changes for both South and East Grade Road. Today the San Diego County Board of Supervisors APPROVED the speed limit changes. In about 60 days (Estimate) we should have new speed signs on both South Grade Road (30MPH) and East Grade Road (40MPH). Here are some notes from the meeting agenda: District 5 Item 5-A. South Grade Road from State Route 76 to East Grade Road in Palomar Mountain (58th Edition Thomas Guide Page 1052-B6) - Establish a 30 MPH speed limit and certify the speed limit for radar enforcement. Wednesday, January 9, 2019 5 Item 5-B. East Grade Road from State Route 76 to South Grade Road in Palomar Mountain (58th Edition Thomas Guide Page 1073-J6) - Establish a 40 MPH speed limit and certify the speed limit for radar enforcement. Approval of Items 5-A and 5-B would establish tools for speed enforcement that increase road safety and retain mobility. Properly posted speed limits provide feedback to safe and reasonable drivers to improve traffic safety, reduce the number and severity of collisions, and allow for fair enforcement. Both 5-A and 5-B have been approved by the San Diego Board of Supervisors this morning."
