Speed Study for the City of Ely: State Street

Speed Study for the City of Ely: State Street

 

The Corridor Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) conducted a speed study of State Street on August 25, 2016, as part of the design for the extension of the Cedar Valley Trail south to Seven Sisters Road. This study was requested to consider lowering the speed limit along State Street from 35 miles per hour (mph) to 30 mph. The Cedar Valley Trail extension engineering team recommended that the speed be lowered to at least 30 mph where the trail is adjacent to the roadway. Mayor Miller requested that this study include the area adjacent to the trail, but also north through the other portions of State Street marked at 35 mph. Below you will find a link to the results and report of the speed study.
