UPDATE : SPEED LIMIT TO BE LOWERED ALONG SH 87/SH 73
Published 2:08 pm Friday, February 19, 2016
Due to bad weather, the new speed limit signs will not be installed today. Crews will replace all signs this Thursday. Weather permitting.
The speed limit along SH 87/SH 73 from West Port Arthur Road to Bridge City will be lowered Tuesday, February 23.
The Texas Transportation Commission passed a minute order December 17, 2015 allowing for the reduction in speed from 75mph to 65mph. The new speed limit will be enforceable once the new signs have been installed.
