Areas of Sacramento Will See Street Speed Reductions

It may take you a little longer to get where you're going in Sacramento, at least if you're driving.

Based on a traffic study, the city of Sacramento is reducing street speed limits in some areas.

It will only be a reduction of five miles per hour, so say a street with a speed limit of 45, that would become 40, 35 miles per hour would become 30, and so on. 

Eight sections of roadway in the city are expected to see the changes, including a section of San Juan Road from Northgate to Regency Park Circle. 

The traffic study found 85 percent of drivers are traveling at or below the speed limit, and with children returning to school and foot traffic expected to rise, safety is always a concern.
