For Immediate Release

Speed Limit Lowered on Roosevelt Avenue

Redwood City, CA - September 19, 2003 - The speed limit on Roosevelt Avenue between El Camino Real and Upton Street is being reduced from 30 to 25 miles per hour. The new speed limit signs are scheduled for installation by September 26. In addition, temporary signs will be posted at strategic locations to alert drivers to the change in the speed limit.

The new speed limit is being implemented as a result of the most recent Engineering and Traffic Survey for this segment of Roosevelt Avenue. That survey reflects the completion of the recent improvement project on Roosevelt Avenue, which narrowed portions of that roadway. The reduction in speed limit is also consistent with the stated desire of many residents who have spoken at a number of Roosevelt Neighborhood Association meetings.

The City's traffic engineering program is an important element in our community's ongoing improvement, and to our quality of life. It's part of Redwood City's Community Development Services department, which consists of four sections: Planning, Redevelopment, Building & Inspection, and Engineering & Construction. The purpose of Community Development Services is to help the community create a vision, plan for that vision, review and build developments in conjunction with that vision, and then maintain that vision through follow up building and code enforcement.
