Speed limit changes coming to Lucasville Road
The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that the speed limit will be reduced to 50 km/h on Lucasville Road in Lucasville. The reduced speed zone includes the existing 60 km/h zone from Civic 315 to Eleventh Street and the existing 70 km/h zone from Eleventh Street to Hammonds Plain Road.
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.
