Traffic Advisory – New 25 MPH “Thickly Settled” Town of
Concord Speed Limit in Effect Beginning - April 4, 2019
Please be advised that the Town of Concord will now display
new 25 MPH Speed Limit signs at all Town entrances beginning on Thursday, April
4, 2019. Following Town Meeting Acceptance of this MGL in 2018, the
Concord Select Board unanimously voted to adopt the establishment of 25 MPH
speed limits in “Thickly Settled” areas or “Business Districts” throughout
Concord on December 17th, 2018.
This 25 MPH designation will be the default speed limit in
lieu of any existing posted speed limit, as allowed by MGL c.90, section 17C.
Please also note: the 25 MPH “Thickly Settled” Speed Limit does not supersede speed limits on roadways with previously adopted special speed regulations which remain in effect as posted.
