Public Hearings - Speed Limit Increases on Foristell Road and Three Others

On Monday, January 7 and Monday, January 28, there will be a public hearing before the St. Charles County Council on a request to raise the speed limits on four New Melle area Roads, Foristell Road, Morrison Lane, Oberhelman Road and Sneak Road.

The proposal calls for raising the speed limit from 35 m.p.h. to 45 m.p.h. on:
- Foristell Road from the western New Melle city limits to Hwy. T;
- Morrison Lane from Foristell Road to Hwy. N; and
- Sneak Road from Oberhelman Road to Hwy. T.

The proposal also calls for raising the speed limit from 35 m.p.h. to 40 m.p.h. on Oberhelman Road from Sneak Road to Foristell Road.

County Councilman Joe Brazil said the request came from some area residents who had complained that the speed limit was too low. Brazil said he asked the County Highway Department to study the roads, and the County Engineers agreed the roads could handle the proposed increases.
The public hearings will be held as part of the regularly scheduled County Council Meetings on the above dates. Meetings start at 7 p.m. at the County Council Chambers, 100 N. Third Street in St. Charles.  You can also comment via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
