Drivers in Grover Beach will be required to slow down in certain areas of the city.
The Grover Beach City Council approved an ordinance to reduce the speed limit on South Oak Park Boulevard from West Grand Avenue to Mentone Avenue from 35 mph to 30 mph.
This was approved on Tuesday, October 11.
This section was recently restriped from two lanes to one lane in each direction and now includes buffered bike lanes.
Following the California Vehicle Code, the city reanalyzed the traffic conditions through commission engineering and traffic investigation in accordance with the 2014 revisions to the California Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices.
The city determined that a 30-mph speed limit is an optimal speed for the safe operation of vehicles.
