Jefferson City Council to vote on speed limit, road project

The Jefferson City Council will meet on several issues Monday night, and are scheduled to vote on a road construction project as well as the posted speed limit on a major road.

The council is expected to vote on a bill to enact a 40 mph speed limit on Rolling Hills Road, near the new St. Mary’s Hospital.

The other two scheduled votes are related to a major road construction project at Stadium and Jefferson near Highway 54 in the Capital City.

One bill will authorize a $254,000 design agreement with George Butler and Associates for that interchange at Stadium and Jefferson. The other will authorize a cost share agreement with Cole County for that project.

The contract with GBA is for them to start the design phase of the project.

Federal surface transportation program funds will finance 80% of that $254,000 cost.

The total cost of the project is estimated to be near $2.4 million. STP funds will cover $700,000 of that amount. Under that bill, Jefferson City and Cole County’s cost for the project would be split evenly at $850,000 apiece. The city’s portion would be funded from the city’s 1/2 cent capital improvement sales tax.
