The Missouri Department of Transportation will raise the speed limit on Route 100 from 55 mph to 60 mph from St. John's Road to Old Route 100 Friday, February 25, weather permitting. The signs for the increased speed limit will be installed along the corridor on Friday.

MoDOT will also raise the speed limit from 45 mph to 55 mph at the I-44/Villa Ridge and Washington sections of the corridor. Crews will restripe the five-lane segments on the highway, weather permitting in mid March, to make the fifth lane into dedicated left turn lanes. New signs need to be installed before the increased speed limit can go into effect.

MoDOT evaluated these sections of Route 100 and determined that the speed limit should be increased. MoDOT reviewed the sight distances at each of the entrances along the corridor and used federal guidelines to establish the new speed limit. They evaluated these areas to ensure that the speed limit increase would not jeopardize any sight distance concerns and safety for motorists.

Motorists need to continue to follow the current posted speed limit listed on the signs along Route 100 no matter whether they are the existing or new speed limit. MoDOT will continue to keep the media and public updated throughout this process of increasing the speed limits.
