TUCSON, Ariz. — Speed limits are changing on various stretches of Tucson roads around town within the next two weeks. The City Council recently approved amending some of the ordinances to make it happen.

The Tucson Department of Transportation says most of the changes are simply administrative. It's because of construction projects, or they are roads that have been recently annexed from Pima County.

There are also a couple of roads that up to this point, have been without a speed limit ordinance.

Here are the roads that will see speed limit adjustments:

- Corona Road from Country Club to Alvernon
- Los Reales Road from Country Club to Alvernon
- Gas Road from Randolph Avenue to Palo Verde
- Houghton Road from I-10 to Andrada Road
- Speedway from west City limits to Camino de Juan
- 22nd from Barbara Drive to east City limits
- Houghton from Mary Ann Cleveland to I-10
- Campbell from 36th Street to Jason Vista
- Cushing from Avenida del Convento to I-10
- Wilmot from Valencia to Littletown Road

Now that the City Council has given the green light to implement the changes to the speed limits, the new signs still need to be put up.

TDOT says they're hoping that will happen within the next two weeks.
