SLOWING DOWN: ODOT moved this Island Avenue speed sign in hopes of slowing traffic prior to the curve that leads into Island City. (The Observer/PHIL BULLOCK).

The Oregon Department of Transportation has relocated a sign on Island Avenue in hopes of reducing the speed of motorists headed into Island City.

ODOT relocated a 30 mph speed zone sign, moving it 325 feet toward La Grande. It also replaced the curve sign near the west entrance to Frontier Motors.

There used to be a curve sign with a small yellow 30 mph sign on it, called a rider, but thats just the recommended speed and cannot be enforced, said Richard Baldwin, ODOT Region 5 traffic investigator.

By relocating the white 30 mph sign, motorists will be required by law to slow down before starting around the curve that leads into Island City, Baldwin said.

We really need drivers to slow down before starting around the curve, especially before they get to the intersection of F Street, Baldwin said.

There is a potential for a bad crash if traffic is moving too fast while someone is trying to get onto Island Avenue from F Street, he said.

Police will be monitoring the area and enforcing the 30 mph speed zone, he said.
