The paving of gravel roads and the results of traffic studies prompted the Boone County Commission on Thursday to consider changing speed limits on several roads. The roads and proposed changes included:

  • Frink Road, to 45 mph from 35.
  • Kemper Road between Route B and Frink Road, to 40 mph from 35.
  • St. Charles Road between the Columbia city limit to Demaret Drive, to 35 mph from 40.
  • St. Charles Road between Demaret to the county line, to 45 mph from 35.
  • Wilbert Lane, to 25 mph from 35.
  • Obermiller Road, to 45 mph from 35.
  • Roemer Road, to 45 mph from 35.
  • Blackfoot Road between Roemer and the Columbia city limit, to 45 mph from 40.
