Edmonton is considering two recommendations that would reduce speed limits in parts of the city.
The first recommendation is to drop the speed limit to 40 km/h on all residential roads. The other recommendation would target a smaller area but take the speed down to 30 km/h.
In the first scenario, Edmonton would apply a default speed limit of 40 km/h in residential neighbourhoods, which are mostly 50 km/h presently. This change would not affect roadways that are set at 60 km/h or higher or arterial roads.
There are also some exception roadways. City administration will evaluate residential collector roads to determine if some should remain at 50 km/h.
