Drivers will have to watch their speed by Morinville Public School.

Effective the first day of school, 100 Street between 101 Avenue and 105 Avenue will be designated a school zone.
 
“This new school zone is a success for the children of this community,” said Sergeant. Dale Kendall of the Morinville RCMP. “Their safety is paramount and this is a positive step in the right direction.”

After receiving concerns from the school and public, the Traffic Advisory Committee determined the area should be 30km/h.

“This change reflects Morinville’s commitment to traffic safety and protecting our most vulnerable road users,” said Sergeant William Norton, Morinville Enforcement Services.
 
Necessary signage will be posted to mark the change.
