Are there any plans to make Rt. 12 65 MPH rather than 55 MPH?

I know the Arterial Realignment is pushing forward and I was hoping maybe there was also something to raise the speed limit for the north side of Rt. 12 through Alder Creek to something more appropriate.

Could easily be 65 MPH from Walmart to south trenton. Not very likely because the troopers use it as a revenue generator by writing tickets on top of deerfield hill. Without the 55 mph speed limit they might have to do some actual police work.

Yeah, it's easy to get caught at the top of that hill if you don't have cruise control. I feel bad for people that aren't from around here that get caught.

They would still be able to nail people going 75. It would really help out those that commute from an hour away to work in the Utica area cutting down travel time. Plus businesses that have to deliver things.

I have heard plans that they will lower it to 45, and will install traffic lights near Don's Ford and SUNY. A pedestran bridge has been proposed to allow people to cross over to Walmart.

I travel to my Doctor's Office in Barnveld and have NEVER been stopped for a Speeding Ticket!

Try using the Cruise Control and set it for 62 and you will never get stopped - plus you will arrive at your location still in one piece with no ticket to pay for!!!!

Traveling from Utica to Barneveld would be about 3 minutes faster if you went 65 instead of 55 but you will use about 8% more fuel.

Yes...Drive 72 mph up Rt12, get pulled over, whip out that left,smelly and saggy nut of yours and place it in that SUV driving troopers pie hole. This way the pretty lady who got his number and is going to dinner with (and maybe more) can taste your smelly and saggy nut sack when she kisses him, because any chick who dates a low life trooper deserves only that....Or worse.........

Here is some math:

From Alder Creek it would save you about 7 mins and from Boonville it will save you up to 12 mins. That's only one way.

I would take that time savings. It makes a difference when you only have to drive an hour round trip rather than an hour and 20 mins round trip.

That's almost 2 hours I would get back every week.

Now, multiply that out by the number of people using the road and how much time is given back to all those people every week from the speed increase?

Typical American - type or say something and automatically believe that it is true. Where did you go to school to learn that Alder Creek to Utica, 20 or 21 miles and a 10 mile an hour speed limit increase eqauls SEVEN minutes?
Try two minutes and change.

I have had cars blow by me doing 70, pass mr suv and he doesn't pull them over. so i am thinking he sets the radar gun @ 72. I won't go faster than 65 thru that area knowing everyday he or one of his cronies is out there. I travel it every morning during the week to go to work in Utica. When they by chance are not there, then I figure they must be fighting "real" crime and watch out the next day- then you'll see 2 suv's and a sheriff. Mark my words and watch. They have a pattern.
So bottom line, from the trooper barracks from remsen he sits in the rest area going south, at the bottom of barneveld hill(on the side w/ town hall), in barneveld on the road to the recycling center, the no u-turns going towards utica, going down deerfield hill just @ the first bend (sits southbound), then right after the ramp for trenton rd sits in the area near that next ramp. That's when you think you've beat him, bam, he's there at that spot!..lol..

Haha I come from barneveld and you hit the nail on the head with every spot. I feel bad for people who don't know any better, I decrease my speed approaching each spot.

Utica giggers are allowed to go 120, if they have starving kids in the car or have a witch that they will burn like back home.

It's not always just about time or saving fuel. Sometimes, conditions allow for a faster speed limit and it just makes. It can be a little less boring. And to use your math, 8% more fuel in 3 minutes won't amount to much of anything. I'll take the faster speed.
