City to Work With Detroit Shoreway Residents to Reduce Franklin Blvd. Speed Limit

The City of Cleveland is committed to ensuring the safety of our residents and visitors. As a result of community concerns about the speed limit on Franklin Boulevard in the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood, the City plans to support residents and City Council as they seek to change the speed limit.

The speed limit on Franklin Boulevard, as a matter of state law, is set at 35 miles per hour. Municipalities do not have the authority to change speed limits.

Residents of the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood have expressed concern over the existing speed limit. The City of Cleveland will work with residents and City Council to reduce the speed limit to 25 miles per hour on Franklin Boulevard.

The City will collaborate with the residents and City Council as they petition the State of Ohio to change the speed limit. In the meantime, in accordance with State of Ohio law, the speed limit will remain 35 miles per hour on Franklin Boulevard.
