New speed-control measures approved for Rain Forest Parkway

The Columbia City Council this week approved two speed tables and a speed hump on a north Columbia street.

Councilman Michael Trapp says people who live near Rain Forest Parkway between Rangeline and Providence are on board with the $25,000 project.

“Traffic calming doesn’t have universal support. People who drive Corvettes and people who enjoy speeding down the road are not fans of this because it’s effective.”

City researchers say that roughly one in six cars on Rain Forest go faster than 45 miles an hour in the 25 mph zone.
