COLUMBIA - The Columbia City Council voted unanimously on lowering the speed limit on part of Forum Boulevard from 45 miles per hour to 35. This speed limit reduction occurs in the section from Stadium Boulevard to Nifong Boulevard.

Columbia resident Carol Headley supports this approval. Headley wants consistency for drivers on the road.

"As you drive around the curve, it changes, so it would be more consistent and it would be more safe because people would know what to expect," Headley said.

The new speed limit is effective immediately.
