More 75 MPH Speed Limit Signs Popping Up In Brazos Valley

A new measure allows you less time to reach your destination.
TxDOT has increased the speed limit to 75 miles-per-hour on some area roadways, including parts of Highway 6 & Highway 21. This will be followed on several roadways in Texas pending the speed studies conducted to determine if it can be done safely.

Initially, the 75 mile-per-hour signs are placed along the Highway 6 between Calvert and the Falls County line, heading toward Waco. There is even a probability that these signs will be put up along Bryan and College Station.

Expect that very soon, you will be able to travel 75 MPH on Highway 6 through all of Brazos and Grimes Counties. As new signs are popping up across the region, drivers will have to get use to the changes.

You will be able to travel fast in Texas as the country is leading the need for speed changes in America.

One motorists, identified as David Breeding, a College station driver, was on his way to a meeting in Waco and he was not aware that he could now travel at 75 MPH. He said that he did not notice a change as traffic was moving along pretty smoothly.

Last Monday, TxDOT installed new signs along Highway 6 on an 11 mile stretching from the Falls County line to Calvert.

Breeding stated that he if he goes faster, he worries about farm and ranch operations along this stretch of roadway. A truck just pulled in front of him with a long trailer pulled out, He allowed adequate time for a vehicle at the stop sign. While this is the closest 75 sign so far to Bryan, there will be many more are coming, but you won’t be able drive the faster speed limit until the signs go up.

Driving home from Houston to see her mother in Waco, Charlotte Brown likes the changes as this amount of speed will lessen travel time at least 30 minutes.

But in Calvert Police Chief Nancy Juvrud warns people they’ll still have to slow down to 35 MPH as there are shoppers. There are also children on the west side who have to cross the highway to go to school.

Other roads soon to have new signs include: Highway 21 from Lee County to west Bryan; Highway 47 as well as U.S. 290 from Waller County to Fayette County.

All the new signs are expected to be up by the spring of 2013. After the change in law 8,892 miles of Texas roads now have speed limits of 75 miles-per-hour or greater.

However, due to construction, the speed limit on a five mile stretch of Highway 6 between F-M 2818 and Boonville Road will be reduced from 70 to 60 miles an hour starting next spring. That ramp project is expected to take around 20 months.

Expect more list of other upcoming 75 MPH roads.
