Speed limit changes coming to Lake Echo area

HRM release:

The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that the speed limit will be reduced on Mineville Road. The existing 70 km/h zone from Highway 7 in East Preston/Lake Echo to Civic 823 in Mineville will be reduced to 50 km/h. The existing 80 km/h zone from Civic 1081 to Lawrencetown Road in Lawrencetown will be reduced to 70 km/h.   

Crews will be posting the new signage this week.

This change is a result of an assessment of the corridor, related to changes in conditions and activities along the roadway.

This effort supports the municipality’s Strategic Road Safety Plan, which aims to reduce fatal and injury collisions on municipal roadways. For more information about the Strategic Road Safety Plan and other road safety countermeasures, visit halifax.ca/roadsafety.
