ST. CLOUD, Fla. -- It's now legal to drive 5 mph faster on a stretch of Budinger Road between Profress Bouelvard and 17th Street for a maximum speed of 30 mph, according to city officials.

A speed study for Budinger Avenue was completed during the week of Jan. 7 between Nolte Road and 17th Street. Speed limits for all roadways are based upon the design roadway speed, sound engineering judgment, and the 85th percentile speed for the roadway.

"The results of the speed study showed the speed limit for Budinger Avenue is set too low at 25 mph based upon the 85th percentile speed," St. Cloud officials said in a press release following passage of a 5 mph speed increase to 30 mph during the Feb. 27 St. Cloud City Council meeting.
