(Jan. 15, 2021) The Ocean City Police Commission approved the reduction of the speed limit on 94th Street from 30 mph to 25 mph during its meeting on Monday.

94th Street

The Ocean City Police Commission approved the reduction of the speed limit on 94th Street from 30 mph to 25 mph to be consistent with other residential areas in the resort and improve safety.

Because other residential communities in the resort, like Little Salisbury Neighborhood, have a speed limit of 25 mph, City Engineer Terry McGean recommended lowering the speed limit on 94th Street  to 25 mph to be consistent. Still, he acknowledged that the change might not have much impact.

“Just lowering the speed limit a little bit … may not seem like it’s going to make much of a difference, but for us, it’s a win-win just because any reduction will improve the possibility of safety,” said Ocean City Police Chief Ross Buzzuro.

Responding to a question from Councilman Peter Buas, McGean said the citywide speed limit is 35 mph unless posted otherwise.

“For most of the residential areas, even before my time, it was set at 25 [mph],” he said.

McGean added that he would research whether other neighborhoods have speed limits higher than 25 mph would address those locations as well.
