The City of Plymouth receives a significant number of requests for traffic control signage each year – many from residents who wish to slow the speed of motorists driving through their neighborhood. View information about submitting a request below.
Are stop signs effective for speed control?
Are additional speed limit signs effective?

Request a Street Sign, Speed Limit Study or Crosswalk Evaluation
To promote safety and livability in residential neighborhoods, the City of Plymouth reviews all requests on a case-by-case basis. The City of Plymouth follows the Minnesota Manual of Uniform Traffic Control and other guidelines in reviewing requests. These provide a uniform policy for street signs, speed limits and crosswalks on all public streets, roads and highways.

This process generally involves the following steps:

  1. Initial Request – Fill out the Traffic Control Request Form
  2. Data Collection & Analysis – City staff will collect and analyze data regarding the request and determine next steps, which may include taking no action. 
  3. Educational and Enforcement Efforts – Additional education and police enforcement can often help mitigate traffic issues. Engineering may work with other departments on additional education efforts.
  4. Physical Improvements or Additional Study – Additional signage, safety improvements or in-depth study may be warranted. Any proposed physical improvements are funding-dependent and may be planned in conjunction with other improvements.
  5. Analysis of Effects – All education, enforcement and implementation will be reviewed for effectiveness.
