Auburn, Washington Speed Traps
Since S 277th St. was widened from 2 lanes to 5 in 2018, the 50 mph speed limit has been lowered to 35 mph. Local police sets up speed traps near the new traffic light or neighborhood entrance at least once per week. Both uphill and downhill 277th traffic is monitored.
The Hazelwood Elementary School zone on 304th does not end at 116th St. where you would expect it to and the police hide at the end of the slight hill on 304th and catch people after they cross 116th going west after they think they are out of the zone and begin to regain speed.
This is a school zone, with camera enforcement. You may get an automatic, machine-generated ticket in the mail for $200 if you are exceeding 20 MPH when you pass this camera. Supposedly the speed limit is only in effect when lights are flashing, but don’t trust this, you may get a ticket anyway.
Dogwood St. Behind Muckelshoot Casino…Police there regularly. Give regular tickets to homeowners going 5mph over!!!
On school days, motorcycle policeman parks in community side streets (62nd or 59th) and monitors all morning commute traffic for strict adherence to School Zone, 20 MPH stretch. Lakeland Hills Way is a major route to SR 167 and Seattle
