Speed Limit Being Increased
May 26 On Route 360/60 and
Route MM West of Springfield

MoDOT, District 8, Springfield -- The speed limit will be increased on two state highways west of Springfield on Thursday, May 26, the Missouri Department of Transportation said.

The signs will be changed during morning hours on each road.

The speed limit will be raised to:

* 70 mph (from 60 mph) on U.S. 60/Route 360 between the Scenic Avenue overpass west of Kansas Expressway on the east and I-44 on the west. This section four-lane, divided freeway is 8-1/2 miles long and connects south Springfield with I-44 to the west of the city.

* 55 mph (from 45 mph) on Greene County Route MM through Brookline between I-44 on the north and U.S. 60/413 east of Republic on the south. Two-lane Route MM is four miles long. The Brookline area soon will become part of the City of Republic.

A speed study done by MoDOT traffic engineers on each highway shows the higher speed limit is appropriate for the traffic and the way people are driving. Each road has a relatively low crash rate.
