MEDFORD, Ore. — The speed limit on Central Avenue through downtown Medford will be reduced from 30 miles per hour to 20 beginning on Monday, according to the Medford Police Department.

The posted limited will begin for southbound traffic on N Central Avenue at E Jackson Street. It will remain 20 miles per hour on Central through downtown Medford.

Medford Police said that the intersection of N Central and E 4th, which is within the reduced limit area, is one of four photo-enforced intersections in the city.

"Photo enforced intersections detect speed and red light violations through the use of an automated system," the agency said. "Traffic citations are issued at photo enforced intersections when red light violations or speed violations of 11 MPH or more over the posted speed limit occur."

The City of Medford won't be issuing traffic citations for speed violations through that intersection for the first 30 days after the speed limit is reduced, but warning letter will be sent out. Citations for speed violations at this intersection will be issued through the photo enforcement program starting on August 12th.

There are also photo-enforced intersections at S Riverside and E 8th, Biddle and E McAndrews, and Barnett and Stewart.

"The City of Medford would like to remind drivers how important it is to obey posted speed limits and traffic signals to help reduce the number of motor vehicle crashes and to save lives," MPD said.
