PORT ORCHARD, WA – On September 24, 2019, the Port Orchard City Council adopted Resolution 032-19 which amends speed limits on certain roads.
Due to annexations, growth, and ongoing development activity in Port Orchard including the recent completion of McCormick Village Park, the City commissioned a speed study determine whether speed limits should be reduced on certain roads. The City’s transportation engineering consultant evaluated speed limits on Old Clifton Road, Sidney Road SW, on SW Sedgwick Road, and Glenwood Road SW.
