Nacogdoches, Texas (KETK) — There will be a speed limit increase planned for an area roadway.
Motorists will soon see a change in the speed limit on Loop 224 in Nacogdoches.
According to the Texas Department of Transportation, the speed limit will increase from 55 mph to 65 mph from U.S. Highway 59 South at Loop 224 to Farm to Market Road 343.
TxDOT maintenance crews will install new signs along this 5.6 mile area within the next week.
The speed limit is being raised after an engineering and traffic investigation showed the need to change the speed to improve safety and to obtain a more efficient traffic flow.
Motorists are warned to abide by the posted speed limits and other traffic control devices on this and all roadways.
The new speed limit takes effect when the signage is erected.
