Speed Limit Reduction Coming for Downtown Edmond

Beginning on Monday, June 22nd, city crews will implement new signage in Downtown Edmond to lower the speed limit from 25 to 20 mph and to prohibit right turns at red lights. These changes are the first step to enhance safety for pedestrians and those utilizing alternative modes of transportation. This work is expected to last multiple weeks to fully implement with cooperative weather.

The following streets will see a speed limit reduction:

  • Littler Avenue between Second Street & Thatcher Street
  • Broadway between Second Street & Thatcher Street
  • Santa Fe Drive between Edmond Road and Hurd Street
  • Victory Road between Edwards Street and Thatcher Street
  • Second Street between Fretz Avenue and Santa Fe Drive
  • First Street between Fretz Avenue and Boulevard
  • Main Street between Fretz Avenue and Boulevard
  • Hurd Street between Fretz Avenue and Boulevard
  • Campbell Street between the Railroad Tracks and Boulevard
  • Edwards Street between the Railroad Tracks and Boulevard
  • Ayers Street between Broadway and Boulevard
  • Thatcher Street between the Railroad Tracks and Boulevard

Additionally, all traffic signals along Broadway between 2nd Street and Thatcher Street will now be “No Right Turn on Red” intersections. City staff and officials continue to look at additional longer-term changes to enhance safety for all modes of transportation in Downtown Edmond.
