75 Mile-Per-Hour Speed Limit Signs Being Assigned to Parts of Highway 6
(KCEN) -- People will soon be able to drive a little bit faster on parts of Highway 6.
The Texas Department of Transportation's Robertson County Maintenance crews are installing 75-mile-per-hour speed limit signs from north of Calvert to the Falls County line.
Increased speed limits will go into effect once all the signs are installed.
The changes are coming after the 82nd Texas Legislature passed and Gov. Rick Perry signed House Bill 1353, allowing TxDOT to establish 75-mile-per-hour speed limits on highways where studies prove the increased speeds are safe.
TxDOT believes the increased speed limits will help increase highway efficiency and still maintaining safety.
