New Speed Limit on SE Duke Street

From Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT):

Today the Portland Bureau of Transportation is updating the speed limit on a portion of SE Duke Street. The new speed limit is 25 mph from SE 52nd to 82nd avenues.

The reduced speed limit supports the City of Portland’s Vision Zero goal to eliminate traffic deaths and serious injuries. Speed is a factor in nearly half of deadly crashes that occur in Portland. Lower speeds result in fewer crashes. When crashes occur, lower speeds make it more likely that people will survive (see image below). You can learn more about the City of Portland’s Vision Zero work at http://visionzeroportland.com.

If you have questions or concerns about the new speed limit, please email Matt Kelly or call him at 503-823-5831.
