County Line Road governed by two counties

QUESTION: I wonder about the discrepancy in the speed limit on County Line Road (north between El Paso and Douglas counties in the Tri-lakes area). It is different on each side of I-25 and it is only 35 mph going west on County Line into Palmer Lake in an area of open fields. Everyone questions why it is so ridiculously slow in that area.

ANSWER: Two sides of the highway, two counties. There’s an intergovernmental agency agreement; Douglas County is responsible for part of County Line Road and El Paso County handles the rest. Speed-limit requests usually go through the Douglas County traffic engineer, 1-303-660-7490. He’ll determine which county you should contact. The El Paso County number is 520-6460.
