Speed Limit Reduced on Rosemary Street

Post Date:10/05/2017 4:23 PM

The Chapel Hill Town Council approved the reduction from 25 miles per hour to 20 miles per hour on the entirety of Rosemary Street—east of North Boundary Street to the Carrboro Town Limits.

This reduction matches the speed limit on Franklin Street and Main Street in Carrboro. All 14 speed limit signs have been replaced and include orange flags to draw extra attention to the new speed limit; a digital display board at each end of the road will help educate people driving motor-vehicles of the reduction for the next two weeks.

The speed reduction will improve safety for all travelers along Rosemary Street. Other safety efforts include recent streetscape improvements and the addition of a buffered bike lane.

Did you know? More than 54,000 motor-vehicles use Rosemary Street in a one-week period when UNC-Chapel Hill and Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools are in session. That number drops by more than half when school is out.
