PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- The speed limit for cars on Portland's bike boulevards and neighborhood greenways is gradually being dropped across the city.
Portland's city council approved the plan last summer. It lowers the speed limit from 25 miles an hour to 20 miles per hour on designated streets throughout the city. Most of the bike boulevards were designated because they're already off the beaten path, with less vehicular traffic to begin with.
But new speed-limit signs went up about a week ago on Southeast Clinton Street, east of 39th Avenue, in southeast Portland. And now Portland police are catching drivers who break the posted speed.
The new signs, which started going up around Portland in February, are expected to mark 70 miles of streets by the end of 2013.
The record cold temperatures throughout Oregon continue to rewrite the history books, or at least add new chapters to them. Warming shelters are opening, but there are still not enough beds.

The Meyers family in Milwaukie opened their home a year ago to sell Christmas trees. They're doing it again this year, but not to make money for themselves. The money they're raising is helping pay for their daughter's medical treatments.
