Today the Traffic Division from Murrieta Police Department informed us that the current speed limit on Clinton Keith Road, East of Whitewood is 65MPH. This is due to the fact that a road survey has still not been completed. We were also informed that we will “most likely” see a reduced speed limit after the completion of the survey.
Murrieta Police is also reminding us that when coming west on Clinton Keith, drivers need to be mindful that they are coming Into a residential and school zone near Whitewood. The limits then go down to 40 miles per hour and 25 when children are present.
No Speed Limit On New Clinton Keith Road Opening
By Jim Fergosi On Aug 27, 2018 347 1
Although the highly anticipated Clinton Keith Road was opened early August, we continue to receive daily emails asking why there is no speed limit posted.
Clinton Keith Road at Whitewood is open and runs all the way to Leon. This road has been talked about for a long time as it loosens up traffic for people using Murrieta Hot Springs Road, to get into the French Valley area.
The question of the days is how come there is no speed limit posting anywhere.
The short answer is Riverside County Traffic Engineers have not conducted a speed survey on the road yet. The survey was expected to take place after school started to get a better indication of traffic during non-peak and peak times. As of now, the speed limit is 65 MPH.
