Impact of Speed Limit Changes on Urban Streets

Status:  Active
Project Start Date:  07/22/2020


A change in state law allows Minnesota cities to establish speed limits without conducting an engineering or traffic investigation. Researchers will evaluate the impact of new speed limits on driver behavior in locations where they have been enacted and develop guidance for cities and counties on when speed limit changes are likely to achieve their desired effect.
