The Missouri Department of Transportation erected new speed limit signs along a portion of Route 100 east of Washington Friday morning, officially raising the limit from 55 m.p.h. to 60 m.p.h. The new speed limit pertains to a section of the highway between St. John's Road and Old Route 100.
The Franklin County Commission and MoDOT approved raising the speed limit several weeks ago, but needed the new signs to be in place before the limit took effect.
Rte. 100 near the Washington eastern city limits and near I-44 will also see a rise in speed limits from 45 m.p.h. to 55 m.p.h., but that will not occur until driving lanes can be restriped. MoDOT announced this week crews would perform the restriping in mid-March.
Missouri Department of Transportation has reported that new speed limit signs on Route 100 east of Washington should be installed Friday, weather permitting, and once that happens then the new speed limit will be in effect. You must obey whatever signs are posted!!!
Drivers on Route 100 east of Washington could be legally driving 60 m.p.h in about a week. Missouri Department of Transportation Area Engineer Judy Wagner told KLPW Wednesday new speed limit signs could be erected along the highway by the end of next week. Once the signs are in place, the speed limit will increase.
MoDOT and the Franklin County Commission have already approved orders increasing the speed limit, but need to wait for the new signs to go up before making it official. The limit will increase from 55 to 60 m.p.h. in the "middle" section of Rte. 100 between Washington and I-44. The two ends, which are currently 45 m.p.h., will remain that way for the near future. Eventually, MoDOT plans to increase those limits as well, but needs to wait until warmer temperatures arrive so crews can restripe driving lanes.
Many local drivers, along with Franklin County Presiding Commissioner John Griesheimer, have asked for an increase in the speed limit since MoDOT opened the highway's new driving lanes in the summer of 2010._________________________________________________________________________________

Drivers on Route 100 between Washington and I-44 will soon begin to legally drive a little faster. According to the Missouri Department of Transportation, the speed limit on Rte. 100 between St. John's Road and Old Route 100 will increase from 55 m.p.h to 60 m.p.h. MoDOT will also raise the speed limit from 45 m.p.h. to 55 m.p.h. at the I-44/Villa Ridge and Washington sections of the corridor. Crews will also restripe the five-lane segments on the highway, weather permitting, to make the fifth lane into dedicated left turn lane.
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.
Franklin County Commissioners have to sign an order officially increasing the speed limit, at least for a portion of the highway, Presiding Commissioner John Griesheimer said. That action should come Tuesday, Jan. 25.
