Reminder:  The 25 MPH speed limit for the City of Melrose will go into effect tomorrow at 12:01 a.m. The only roadways not subject to this new speed limit are:

  • Lynn Fells Parkway
  • Ravine Road

All other roadways not posted at 25 MPH or less will transition from the current speed limit signage of 30 to 25 over the next week.

“Our goal here is to reduce motor vehicle crashes by 5 percent through education, enforcement and community meetings. Year to date we’ve investigated nearly 300 crashes in the city,” Chief Lyle said. “We understand that there will be a transition period as residents adjust to the new speed limit.”

Over the last hour or so, the Melrose Police Department has responded to approximately two dozen car crashes throughout the city due to slippery road conditions.

Chief Michael Lyle advises residents to remain off the roads until the trucks dropping sand have done a complete sweep of the city.

Sanders are currently making their way down roads to salt and sand.

Drivers who must be on the roads are reminded to proceed with caution, as the roads are icy and slippery.
