KIRKWOOD– You may have to slow down the next time you’re on Big Bend Road.

The Kirkwood City Council is voting Thursday to reduce the speed limit to 30 miles per hour. Currently, the speed limit on that stretch sits between 35 and 40 miles per hour.

The section of Big Bend impacted would be from Interstate 270 to the eastern edge of Kirkwood. The current speed limit there is 40 miles per hour.

Big Bend west of 270 already has a speed limit of 30 miles per hour.

If the city council passes the resolution to lower the speed limit on Big Bend, the resolution would be sent to the Saint Louis County Department of Transportation for approval.
