SEATTLE, WA – The Seattle Department of Transportation this week is lowering the speed limit on several state routes in the area by 5 miles per hour, a week after it similarly reduced speed limits on most city streets to 25 miles per hour.
According to King 5, affected highways include State Route 99, State Route 513, State Route 523, and State Route 522. Additionally, segments of NE 45th Street, 145th Street, Lake City Way NE, Marginal Way, Montlake Boulevard, and Sandpoint Way, will also have their speed limits reduced.
More than 150 new speed limit signs were put in place on Sunday, with additional rollouts scheduled for April.
The move is part of Seattle’s Vision Zero project, which seeks to reduce serious roadway accidents and eliminate fatalities.
