Due to popular demand, the speed limit on both Arsenal and Magnolia along Tower Grove Park in St. Louis has been dropped from 30 mph to 25 mph. You might have noticed the new construction-orange speed limit signs that went up a few weeks back noting the change. Or then again, you might have missed them since nobody seems to pay attention to the new limit. Both roads are prettywide, and I have to admit, cutting back to 25 mph feels like you’re crawling along the stretch.
The drop was put in place following a hit and run death of a pedestrian at Klemm and Magnolia back in February. All indications are that this move is intended to be permanent, but one can never tell what a will happen when a little more time has passed. But for now, watch that lead-foot.
