MOUNT VERNON — A survey will determine safe speeds for curves on 30 county roads.

The Knox County Commissioners signed a contract Thursday with MasterMind LLC, Delaware, to examine curves on 136 miles of county roadways. The contract is for $100 per mile, with the total amount not to exceed $13,600.

The contract involves MasterMind driving the roads with equipment to determine at what speed a curve can be safely navigated, according to Knox County Engineer Cameron Keaton. The survey is funded through a $13,600 County Engineers Association of Ohio Safety Study grant.
