Project Description

In alignment with the city-wide speed review and the Municipal Development Plan (MDP), Municipal Works has completed a speed review for the downtown and has determined reducing the posted speed limit to 40 km/h.
Motorists are advised the new speeds will take effect on June 29, 2020.

Timing & Traffic Accommodations

Appropriate signs will be posted outside of the downtown core prior to any changes taking place, giving drivers time to adjust before the new speed limit takes effect.


By lowering the posted speed limits, the City of Medicine Hat aims to maintain public safety and create a more walkable downtown.


Updates to the project will be provided here, by public advisory and on the City’s social media channels.


Motorists are asked to slow down around work crews as they install signs in and around the downtown area.


The City of Medicine Hat would like to thank residents and businesses for their continued patience and understanding as the necessary upgrades are completed, helping to ensure safe and reliable infrastructure for years to come.
