The City of Tampa will be reducing speeds on Bayshore Boulevard from 40 mph to 35 mph beginning on Friday.

The speed reduction comes just days after a mother was killed by racing drivers while pushing her baby in a stroller along the road.

The city will begin replacing all speed limit signs on Bayshore Blvd. on Friday.

The city will speed up an already planned phase of the Bayshore project.

Tampa Police Department traffic enforcement will continue and officers will incorporate the new speed limits as the signs are placed.

The city says there will be message boards along the road notifying drivers of the change for the next few weeks.
