SPEED LIMIT LOWERED ON HALSELL – Bridgeport City Council voted Monday to decrease the speed limit from 30 to 25 mph along Halsell, an action recommended by Bridgeport Police Chief Steve Stanford.

Stanford said it would be wise to put yield to pedestrian signs at the intersections without stop signs.
