COLUMBIA — Drivers on U.S. 63 may encounter a lower speed limit on a portion of the road starting next week.
The Missouri Department of Transportation will lower the speed limit on U.S. 63 to 65 mph from 70 mph, according to a press release. The lowered speed limit will extend from Route AC to Route B. The new speed limit signs will be installed next week.
The change is being made in response to a speed limit study done by MoDOT after receiving a request from the city of Columbia to lower the speed limit to improve safety and traffic flow, according to the release.
