Longview, TX — White Oak’s City Council agreed Tuesday to drop the speed limit on U.S. 80 through the city while work on a turn lane is taking place.
Drivers will now have to travel less than 45 mph from Texas 42 to the city’s eastern limits on U.S. 80, said City Coordinator Charles Smith.
The decision was made during a special session of the council in which members also decided to issue certificates of obligation as a first step toward waste water plant improvements planned by the city, Smith said.
