The speed limit along a one-mile stretch of Shroyer was reduced to 25 mph two weeks ago.

Originally, the speed limit on Shroyer was 35 mph. Construction on the mile-long stretch of Shroyer for a lane reduction project caused the city to reduce the speed limit and declare the roadway a construction zone, doubling the fines for anyone caught speeding.
Once construction is complete around fall, Shroyer road will have a completely different look, reducing the total number of car lanes from four to two, with protected left turn lanes installed for safety.
We’ve reached out to the Oakwood Public Safety Department and will update this story when we hear from them.
