Downtown Whitehorse speed limit

Post Date:08/10/2021 12:00 PM

Whitehorse – As of Monday, August 23rd, the speed limit on all downtown Whitehorse streets will be 40 km/h.

Speed limits in school and playground zones will remain unchanged at 30 km/h.

The speed limit change is part of the Safe Speeds Downtown initiative, which was created following Council’s review of recommendations for enhancements to Second Avenue.

Lower speed limits make our roads safer and friendlier for all modes of transportation, including walking, cycling, transit, driving, commercial goods movement and emergency response.

Over the coming weeks, City crews will be updating signage at entrances to the downtown area and along major routes to reflect the new speed limits and remind motorists of the upcoming changes.
