Rosemont Road Speed Zone Change to 25 MPH

WEST LINN - The speed zone on Rosemont Road from Oppenlander Sports Field to Furlong Drive in the City of West Linn will decrease from 35 MPH to 25 MPH on August 25, 2010. The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) authorized this change after completing a study jointly requested by the City of West Linn and the Rosemont Summit Neighborhood Association. ODOT justifies the need for this change based upon citizen’s concerns for pedestrian safety (adjacent to a middle school), the presence of a school zone, speed zone inconsistency with other nearby zones, and the presence of a four-way stop intersection.  Motorists are encouraged to slow down and observe the new speed zone.  Please direct any questions about this speed zone change to Sam Foxworthy at sfoxworthy@westlinnoregon.gov. ###
