New speed limit on Eastex Freeway
KFDM News - Construction has begun on the redesign of ramps on Highway 69, and with it comes a new speed limit.
So drivers should be careful in order to avoid a speeding ticket in a construction zone.
The Texas Department of Transportation posted the new 55-mile per hour signs along Eastex Freeway, dropping the speed limit by 10 miles per hour from the previous 65-mile per hour limit.
According to TxDOT, the new signs were posted on the southbound lanes on Thursday. And, the new speed limit signs went up on the northbound lanes today on Friday.
The speed reduction runs from Highway 69 at Interstate 10 north to Highway 105.
Construction could last up to two years.
