Speed limits reduced on three Broken Arrow roads


The City of Broken Arrow has reduced the speed limit on three roads in the southern portion of the City. Each road has been reduced to a 40 miles per hour limit, down from the previous 50 miles per hour limit.

Effective immediately, the speed limit reductions affect:

  • Jasper (131st) Street between Olive (129th) Avenue and Aspen (145th) Avenue,
  • Tucson (121st) Street between Olive Avenue and Garnett Road, and
  • Aspen Avenue between Jasper and Tucson Streets.

These streets kept the Tulsa County speed limit of 50 miles per hour when they were originally annexed into the City. However, the City Council and City staff have heard from residents who feel that speed limit will be too fast with residential and commercial development currently underway and planned for the near future. 

As a result, City staff decided lowering the speed limit on these roads was a reasonable safety measure. The City’s Streets Department has already started replacing speed limit signs and will have all new signs posted by the end of the week.
