LUFKIN – A Texas Transportation Commission Minute Order has been issued establishing a lower speed limit on a portion of State Highway 87 in Shelby County.
The speed limit change is a result of a recent traffic and engineering speed study conducted on the roadway and will allow for a safer traffic flow and provide for better maneuverability through the area.
The speed limit on SH 87 will be reduced from 70 miles per hour to 60 miles per hour from the end of the Center High School Speed Limit Zone to 2,500 feet west of the Christian Academy School Zone along SH 87.
Motorists are advised to be alert to the changing speed limit and abide by all traffic control devices and signage.
The lower speed limit will take effect once signs are installed.
