Andy’s Camp Road’s speed limit has been lowered to 30 kilometres per hour, after a motion was passed by Kenora City Council.

The city’s Operations and Infrastructure Division received a written request, along with endorsing signatures of 11 residents of Andy’s Camp Road, to lower the current regulatory speed limit of 50 kilometres per hour on Andy’s Camp Road to 30 kilometres per hour from Villeneuve Road North, for the entire length of the roadway.

Residents along the road had complaints about noise, and had concerns about the narrow roadway. Comments were received from the City of Kenora’s Roads Division and the Ontario Provincial Police in support of the request.

Kenora Mayor Dave Canfield added that everyone involved was in support of the change, so there was no reason to fight the request. Andy’s Camp Road is located off of the bypass of Highway 17A, heading west.
