Speed Limit Reduction in Old Town Cottonwood
COTTONWOOD, AZ – Effective Thursday, October 1, 2020 the City of Cottonwood has reduced the speed limit on Main Street between Willard Street and Cactus Street. The new posted speed limit is now 15 MPH.
The reduction in the posted speed limit was given careful and considerate deliberation by all of the stakeholders involved, all with the end goal of reducing the propensity for traffic collisions and enhancing the safety of our Old Town area. As such, the Cottonwood Police Department will continue to exercise its discretion by asking for voluntary compliance prior to enforcement action during this transition period, as motorist become acclimated to the speed limit change.
Please forward any questions regarding this change to David Hausaman, City of Cottonwood Public Works Manager (928) 634—8033, ext. 2767.
