New speed limit implemented for thickly settled roads, business districts in Holyoke, Massachusetts

New speed limits have been put into place in Holyoke.

The city of Holyoke will be implementing a statutory 25 miles per hour speed limit in thickly settled or business district zones throughout the city, in an effort to keep the streets safer for pedestrians, bicyclists, and other motorists.

The current speed limit for these areas is 30 miles per hour.

This new measure will allow the city greater flexibility in installing traffic control measures.
