NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A speed limit change will soon be in place in the area around Regents Academy in Nacogdoches.
Construction began on Thursday for a new school zone to go into effect on Northeast Stallings Drive. The zone will stretch about a third of a mile on South Loop 224.
It was back in the first week of December when parents and Regents Academy took a formal action to request a school zone. However, the need for the speed reduction dates back several years as the school has expanded according to the David Bryant, the school's headmaster.
Nacogdoches City Council approved the new school zone earlier this month. Construction is expected to be completed in two weeks.
