Take this Survey on Reducing Speed Limits in Worcester

WORCESTER – The City of Worcester Department of Transportation and Mobility launched a public survey for feedback on a proposal to lower the statutory speed limit in Worcester from 30 mph to 25 mph. The proposal also seeks to establish 20 mph safety zones at select, sensitive sites in the city.

Posted speed limit signs would still apply under the proposal. The statutory speed limit applies when there is not a limit otherwise posted.

The city encourages residents to take this survey to share their feedback.

The proposal is part of the city’s Vision Zero program, which seeks to eliminate deaths and severe injuries because of crashes on city streets. Take the survey here.

The Worcester City Council Traffic and Parking Committee has already held a public meeting in each of the city’s five districts on the matter. Slides from a presentation on the proposal are available.

The city held a State of our Streets forum in February. Footage of the full forum is below.
