During the week of March 16, 2020, the speed limit on University Avenue from Wright Street to Maple Street will be reduced to 30 miles per hour. The reduction in the speed limit was requested by the City of Urbana and then approved by IDOT.
The speed will be lowered in conjunction with the construction that will be performed along the same length of University Avenue. This speed limit reduction will be a permanent change and remain so after construction is completed.
IDOT crews will be performing the speed limit sign changes along the corridor in the coming week as part of this reduction process. The speed limit reduction will be effective once the new signs are in place.
