(a) Whenever the Department of Transportation determines upon the basis of an engineering
and traffic survey that the limit of 65 miles per hour is more than is reasonable
or safe upon any portion of a state highway where the limit of 65 miles is applicable,
the department may determine and declare a prima facie speed limit of 60, 55, 50,
45, 40, 35, 30, 25, 20, or 15 miles per hour, whichever is found most appropriate to facilitate the orderly movement
of traffic and is reasonable and safe, which declared prima facie speed limit shall
be effective when appropriate signs giving notice thereof are erected upon the highway.
