Speed limit signs

Speed limits do not indicate the
maximum speed drivers should travel.
They are the maximum speed permitted
when conditions are ideal. Any speed
that is unsafe for the current conditions is
illegal.

  
        

Speed limit signs are in kilometres per hour
(km/h).

Unless otherwise posted:
• 100 km/h is the maximum speed
   limit on a provincial highway located
   outside an urban area.

• 80 km/h is the maximum speed limit on
   a provincial highway located inside
   a corporate limit of a city.
• 80 km/h is the maximum speed limit on
   a roadway that is located outside an
   urban area.

  
         

A provincial highway is identified by
either a single-digit, two-digit or three-digit
highway route marker.

A local road generally would not have a
route marker but could be identified by a
name, such as Irricana Road, a township
road, such as TWP RD 52, or a range
road, such as RGE RD 252.
• 50 km/h is the maximum speed limit on
   a roadway that is located within an
   urban area.
