On Tuesday, the Washington State Department of Transportation posted the new speed limit signs along state Route 410.

From Myers Road East at milepost 12.9 to 214th Avenue East at milepost 15.7 the speed limit is reduced from 45 miles per hour down to 40.

The city requested the lower speed to help decrease the number of speed-related accidents.

Now that the signs are in place, the new speed limit is enforceable.

Saturday, April 5

The 81st annual Daffodil Parade starts at 10:15 a.m. in Tacoma and travels through Puyallup, Sumner and Orting.

This year a 5K challenge run will take place in all four cities.

Participants can run in one city or can run in all four.

The Daffodil Festival and the YMCA are coordinating the 5K challenge.

The proceeds from the run will go toward the YMCA’s annual campaign, YMCA’s community relations director Renee Quinn said.

The races will take place in each city prior to the start of the parade.

Registration prices vary depending on the number of races you want to enter.

You can register up until race day. Registration will be available two hours prior to the start times.

For more information regarding the 5K races, visit the race website.

The theme for the parade this year is “Ready, Set, Grow.” And the grand marshal leading the trail through the four cities Saturday is Ciscoe Morris.

“His expertise, passion for gardening, and humorous demeanor endears him to his audience,” officials said in a Facebook post. “Ciscoe is the perfect Grand Marshal for the theme.”
