The speed limit on a section of Kendall Road near the Kendall Elementary School has been reduced to 40 miles per hour.
A speed study of the area determined traffic flow there better matches the reduced speed, according to the state Department of Transportation.
It had been 55 miles per hour.
The reduction is only for a small stretch of Kendall Road, also known as Highway 547, between Mount Baker Highway and Wheeler Road.
Signs posting the reduced speed were installed on Thursday, December 12th, 2013.
