Several street construction projects are underway or beginning throughout the city. To ensure the safety of construction workers, drivers are asked to follow the designated detour routes.
If the detour routes take you down a residential street, please obey the speed limit, which is 25 mph. It is summer, and the kids are out enjoying the outdoors, so the Johnston Police Department wants to ensure their safety. A residential road is not an interstate, so please slow down.
To ensure motorists obey the residential speed limit, extra enforcement will be out patrolling the neighborhoods near the construction zones. Please slow down, so the Johnston Police Department doesn't have to greet you at your window.
