BEND, OR -- Speed limits are being reduced this month, on a portion of Penn Avenue and Neff Road. Bend officials say the changes are in response to community input and new engineering analysis, given changing traffic and development in the area.
Penn, which turns into Neff, goes from 35 to 25-miles an hour, between Northeast Eighth and Eastwood Drive. Then, from Eastwood to Eagle Road, the speed limit is reduced from 35 to 30 miles an hour.
New speed signs have orange flags to draw attention to the change.
