Reduced Speed Limits
At the May 11th Ocean Shores council meeting the council approved ordinance number 863. The approval of the ordinance will result in a number of changes to speed limits within the city.
The revised speed limits will become effective thirty (30) days after publication of the ordinance. Publication is scheduled to take place on May 18th.
The following is a list of those streets where speed limits will change:
Downtown Business District: 25 mph
Eastside Streets: 20 mph
Eastside Streets: 30mph
Southern Streets: 30 mph
Pt. Brown Ave: 35 mph
Pt. Brown Ave: 30 mph
The speed limit on Dolphin Avenue NE will be dropping from 30 miles per hour to 25 miles per hour to comply with state law.
When the revised speed limits take effect the Ocean Shores Police Department will begin conducting routine traffic safety emphasis patrols. We are asking for voluntary compliance with the revised speed limits.
As a reminder, unless posted otherwise, the speed limit on city streets is 25 miles per hour
