On May 16, speed limits throughout Fort Saskatchewan received a major overhaul.

The move was part of the city's Vision Zero initiative, a long-term goal of zero traffic fatalities or serious injuries. 

The major change was moving most residential 50 km/hr zones to 40 km/hr. A small stretch of road on 99th Avenue was increased from 50 km/h to 60 km/hr.

Highway 15 east of 119 Street was also supposed to increase from 70 km/h to 80 km/hr but hasn't as of yet.

The city has said that they're waiting for a company to update the timing for the advance warning lights near Dow Chemical. It's taking longer than expected and until the warning lights are adjusted, the speed will stay at 70 km/hr.
