Reduce speed during Dorsey Drive construction

I'm wondering if anyone else thinks the current 60 mph speed limit is unsafe for the areas of Highway 49 undergoing construction near Dorsey Drive. The freeway has been narrowed by barricades, and there's no shoulder available. I'm surprised that a reduction of driving speed did not coincide with the onset of construction for this stretch of highway.
