The speed limit on Hillcrest Boulevard between 5th and Canyon avenues and Myrtle Avenue between Hillcrest and Foothill boulevards will increase from 30 to 35 m.p.h. But the speed limit on Huntington Drive and on Lemon Avenue from Mountain Avenue to the eastern city limit, and on Mayflower Avenue between Huntington Drive and Duarte Road, will decrease from 40 to 35 m.p.h. It will also drop from 35 to 30 m.p.h. on Mayflower between Foothill Boulevard and Huntington Drive.
