The Missouri Department of Transportation will restripe the sections of Route 100 at the I-44/Villa Ridge and Washington portions of the corridor on Wednesday, April 6, weather permitting.

MoDOT will raise the speed limit from 45 mph to 55 mph at these sections of Route 100 when the restriping is completed. Crews will restripe the five-lane segments on the highway to make the fifth lane into dedicated left turn lanes.

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.
