Ottawa Part Of A Provincial Pilot Project To Raise Speed Limit

Starting in mid-September, as part of a pilot project, Ontario will increase speed limits to 110 km/h on three sections of highways in Southern Ontario, including Ottawa.

The locations are Highway 417 from Ottawa/Gloucester to the Ontario/Quebec border, Queen Elizabeth Way from St. Catharines to Hamilton, and Highway 402 from London to Sarnia.

The government says the speed limit pilots are a way to explore new ways to improve traffic flow and safety on provincial highways. Increased safety messages and updated signs will be posted for drivers.

The street-racing penalty will remain at 150 km/h, meaning penalties will apply at 40 km/h over the posted speed limit. The provincial government will also launch province-wide consultations, starting in the next few weeks.
