“We’ve heard concerns about speeding from people throughout the Cambridge community,” said Joseph Barr, Director of the Traffic, Parking, and Transportation Department. “Reducing the speed limit is an important step towards addressing those concerns. This change will also inform the way that we design our streets and help support our ongoing traffic calming efforts.”
The city plans to start installing new 20 mph speed limit signs in mid-November, and expects to take three months before the installations are complete. An interactive map that illustrates the project is available at cambridgema.gov/20mph.
