Ely, Minnesota Speed Traps
The Ely Police park out on Highway 169 by the US Forest Service, Wolf Center or Grant McMahon Blvd waiting for traffic coming out of Ely toward Winton.
coming into town, the speed drops from 55 to 30, there is a curve in the road…they sit with radar guns checking incoming traffic as it rounds the curve
Heading north into town, the speed limit changes from 55 to 30, and there’s a steep hill going down, so you really have to stay on your brakes. They’ll be waiting for you on busy week-ends during tourist/early fishing season!
