ROBERTSON COUNTY — Tuesday, the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) Robertson County Maintenance sign crews will be installing the new 75mph speed limits signs on SH 6, north of Calvert to the Falls County Line.
Once these signs are installed the new 75mph speed limit will be in effect.
The 82nd Texas Legislature passed and the Governor signed House Bill 1353 which allows TxDOT to establish 75mph speed limits on Texas highways providing speed studies showing it can be done safely.
This same area was also recently upgraded to a divided highway to accommodate for increased traffic flow.
Texas’ economic strength depends on the efficient and safe movement of people and goods. These new speed limits increase highway efficiency while maintaining the safety of the transportation system.
