City considering reducing 30MPH areas to 25MPH


At the April 11th, 2024 regular business meeting, the LFP city council heard the results of a safe speed study, which resulted in the proposal to reduce speeds from 30 to 25 MPH on all existing 30 MPH roadways. Additional enforcement and traffic calming on NE 195th St and 40th Pl were also discussed. 

The affected streets will be:

  • NE 205th St between 30th Ave NE and 37th Ave NE
  • 35th Ave NE between Ballinger Way and NE 205th
  • 40th Pl NE
  • NE 197th St
  • NE 204th St
  • 55th Ave NE within city limits

Further discussion regarding speed limits on Ballinger Way and Bothell Way revealed that since they're state routes, the city has to work with WSDOT to lower speed limits. The meeting showed that WSDOT hasn't been responsive to the mayor's queries, but pushing for action was slated for priority follow-up.
