New speed limit signs on SH 7 between Center and Nacogdoches
LUFKIN – Lower speed limit signs are scheduled to be posted that will lower the speed limit on SH 7 East in Nacogdoches, San Augustine and Shelby counties.
Texas Department of Transportation commissioners approved the recommendation for the speed limit adjustment in August. The new speed limit was reduced from 75 mph to 65 mph. The change will become enforceable when the signs are set.
The section of SH 7 East where the speed limit will be changed includes .3 miles east of SL 224 in Nacogdoches to Martinsville. The reduced speed also extends from just east of Martinsville and continues on SH 7 through San Augustine County and will end at the Center city limits in Shelby County.
Motorists should remain alert and obey all traffic control devices and speed limits.
