Bowman Road Speed Limit Change

Recently, by order of the New York State Department of Transportation, the speed limit signs on Bowman Road were changed from 30 MPH to 40 MPH.

It was discovered in a Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) request that Bowman Road, although posted at 30 MPH, had no existing notice of orders to validate the signage.

At that time, the Town requested a speed study from New York State to determine the appropriate speed limit. The New York State Department of Transportation engineers completed their study and determined a 40 MPH speed zone is appropriate at this time. The Town has no jurisdiction over setting this speed limit, and it is set solely by New York State. A copy of the change order is available here.

Questions or concerns regarding the signage change may be directed to the Town Clerk’s Office at 315-637-3521 or via email at
