ROSEBURG, Ore. -- The speed limit on Douglas Avenue from Dos Gatos Court to the city limits east of Lombardy Drive will be reduced from 35 to 25 mph.

This starts on Sept. 14 and new signs will be put in place to inform drivers. 

“The city has recently submitted a Safe Routes to School grant application to ODOT, which will help us construct necessary improvements to a section of Douglas Avenue," said Public Works Director Brice Perkins. 

This change is in response to concerned citizens who voiced their worries over cars speeding on the road combined with the increased development of the area. 

“With the increase in housing development, along with plans to improve pedestrian and bike travel, it made sense for the speed limit to be reduced,” Perkins said.
