Texas Highways - the First to Increase Speed Limits

TxDot increased Speed level in TexasThe Texas transportation commission has recently approved higher speeds on four central Texas highways with 75 mile per hour limit since recent legislation (HB 1353) took effect on September 1.

The four Central Texas highways are the first in the state to be posted at this speed. TxDOT announced that speed limits be raised on sections of I35, SH 130, SH 45 and US 281 in Bell, Travis, Burnet and Williamson counties.

Carol Rawson, TxDOT Traffic Operations Division director said that "This is a great start, but we have a long way to go".

He also added that new 75 mph signs will be posted very soon in the near future. Approved 75 mph speed limits are located on:

I-35-- 22 miles from Georgetown to Salado
SH 130 -- 45 miles from I-35 in Williamson County to US 183 in Travis County
SH 45 -- 9 miles from US 183 to I-35 in Travis County
US 281 -- 12 miles from the Lampasas-Burnet County line to 8 miles north of the Burnet citylimits

It is to be noted that the increase in speed limits are not effective until the new signs are installed on the road side.

The new speed limits in Texas are set using the 85th percentile method which is used to set speed limits nationwide for the past 60 years and it represents the speed the majority of drivers are traveling.
