[ARCHIVED] New Speed Limits Coming to 3 Allen Roads

Speed Limit Signs

Allen is preparing to adjust the speed limit on several city streets. Engineers completed traffic studies on sight distance, crash history, average speed and other factors before making recommendations to Allen City Council. The new speed limits include:

 Exchange Parkway

  • From Watters Road to Greenville Avenue, the speed limit will now be 45 mph.
  • Greenville to Angel will remain 40 mph.

Malone Road

  • Between Bethany Drive and Chaparral Drive, the speed limit will now be 35 mph

Ridgeview Drive

  • For the newest stretch of Ridgeview, between Watters and Chelsea, the speed limit will be set to 45 mph.

The cost of new speed limit signs will be covered by the traffic engineering operating budget. City Council unanimously approved the changes during the November 13 meeting.
