The Roseville City Council is looking to tweak some speed limits in the city.

The proposed changes include:

  • Increasing the speed limit to 45 miles per hour (from 40) on Roseville Road from Cirby Way to south of Fir Avenue.
  • Decreasing the speed limit to 45 miles per hour (from 50) on Industrial Avenue from Washington Boulevard to north of Veterans Drive.
  • Decreasing the speed limit to 30 miles per hour (from 35) on Opportunity Drive to Vineyard Road.

The speed limit changes are a result of traffic surveys completed by city staff.

"State law specifies that speed limits are determined by traffic surveys," Helen Dyda, a spokeswoman with the city's Public Works Department, said. "These standards require the posted speed to be set at the lowest 5 mph increment from the speed 85% of motorists are measured driving."

Roseville Police Department spokeswoman Dee Dee Gunther said the proposed speed limit spike on Roseville Road is a great sign, noting that it has become safer.

"We used to catch a lot of people in the rain," she said.

If approved, the changes would take effect next month.
