Speed Limit Reduction Proposed for Stretch of SE 60th Street

SE 60th St speed limit reduction proposal map

King County is proposing to reduce the speed limit on a 0.6-mile segment of SE 60th Street in the near future. King County staff observed a difference in the speed limit on SE 60th Street from that posted by the adjacent City of Bellevue. On the basis of segment length, roadway alignment, narrow lanes, lack of shoulders, posted speed in Bellevue and posted speed on 189th Avenue SE, the County determined that the speed limit should be reduced from 35 to 30 mph to match the speed limit posted by the City of Bellevue. The 35 mph zone is indicated in the map below by the red line.

If approved, the speed reduction is expected to take place by the end of 2018. For more information on the proposed speed limit change, visit our website at https://www.kingcounty.gov/depts/transportation/roads/speed-limit-reductions.aspx

Public comment is being accepted on this speed limit reduction proposal through November 27, 2018.
