Texas Studies 85-Mph Speed Linit, Fastest In US ( Do You Approve)

(Reuters) – A stretch of highway under construction in Texas could be the first U.S. road to have a posted 85 mile per hour speed limit, according to the Texas Department of Transportation.

Texas State Highway 130 will run between San Antonio and Austin with the aim of taking traffic loads off of Interstate 35. The major north-south highway was named the fourth most congested road in the state by the Texas Department of Transportation last year.

Most of Highway 130 is built – and speed limits are posted at 80 mph – with the remaining section set to open before the end of this year.

“We’ll definitely take a look at that stretch, and we will conduct speed studies to see what that speed limit will be,” Darren McDaniel, the Texas Department of Transportation’s speed management director, said at a conference this week.
