CANTON – If you drive in Canton, get ready for a change. Speed limits in Canton are being lowered from 35 mph to 25 mph.
The Missouri Department of Transportation will drop the speed limits on Business Route 61, 16 and P through residential areas.
Crews will be installing the new speed limit signs this month.
The change is being made after MoDOT conducted a speed limit study and found safety could be improved if they lowered speeds by 10 mph.
