Motorists will soon see a repositioning of speed limit signs on SH 21 west of Douglass in Nacogdoches County.
Crews will move the existing speed limit signs after Texas Transportation Commissioners recently approved the repositioning in order to enhance the safety of the roadway.
The existing 70 mph speed limit sign will be moved 1.1 mile further west in the westbound lane of traffic and the 55 mph speed limit sign will also be moved 1.1 mile further west in the eastbound lane of traffic. The new placement of speed limit signs will be enforceable once signs are placed.
Motorists are urged to stay alert to these changes and obey all signage in the area. For more information regarding roadway projects and closures statewide, visit drivetexas.org.
