Speed Limit Decrease

by Christa Lollis

Last month the Lufkin city council voted in favor of decreasing the speed limit along 59.   Now the signs between Burke and Lufkin have been changed. The speed limit used to be 70 but it is now 60. The Texas Department of Transportation wanted to lower the limit so that it would be consistent from Diboll to Lufkin. Drivers are being cautioned to pay attention to the signs to make sure they don't speed.
