Speed limit change on Auburn St. - WREX.com – Rockford’s News Leader

Speed limit change on Auburn St.

Drivers along one stretch of Auburn St. will notice a change in the speed limit.

The City of Rockford dropped the speed limit from 45 to 35 outside Auburn High School. The traffic department says it's because the speed limits along the road were different depending on which direction you were headed, and it wanted to make it more uniform. The city said rather than raise  both sides to 45, it lowered it to 35 because of the school. 

There are orange flags on the signs to alert drivers of the change.
