Reduced speed limit on Willowdale Road

Effective today the speed limit on Willowdale Road was posted as a 30 mph zone, down from the previous 35 mph zone.  This speed limit is consistent with other similar roadways that are thickly settled residential zones.  Please drive carefully and slowly through this area and other similar residential areas.  Additional signage intended to slow traffic will be added in the springtime when the ground thaws.  

Please drive through these residential areas as if you live there!

Thank you, Chief Howe
