REDMOND, OR -- Drivers are now moving slower on the north end of Redmond. City crews installed new signs, this week, lowering the speed limit from 45 to 40 MPH on Business Highway 97, from NW Jackpine Ave. to NW Quince Ave. Officials say the reduction was recommended by a recent study conducted by the Oregon Department of Transportation that showed a number of people trying to turn into and out of driveways.


Redmond City Engineer Mike Caccavano said in a statement, “We know that lower speed limits are an important tool in reducing fatal and serious crashes and creating safer streets for people of all ages and abilities who are walking, driving, and bicycling." He added, “Following the ODOT speed study recommendation, City Engineering worked together with Transportation and Redmond Police Department to get the speed reduced to a more appropriate 40 MPH.”
