Previously, the stretch past the Northern Lights College campus had a speed limit of 70 km/h, reduced to 60 km/h around the curve. One 60 km/h sign remains on the eastbound side of the road just before the bend, but it's unclear whether or not that was an oversight by the Ministry.

Reducing the speed limit on the corner of the bypass was one of the suggestions by residents hoping to increase safety for pedestrians, while still keeping the walking path. Mayor Lori Ackerman says she can't comment on the change, as the area is out of the City's jurisdiction. A call has been placed to the Ministry of Transportation for an explanation of the reason for the change.
