The Texas Department of Transportation is telling drivers to beware of a reduced speed limit on I-27. Because of construction, the speed limit is down to 55 miles per hour on the interstate from Spur 326 to the Airport road exit.
TxDOT officials say speeders risk injuring construction workers or getting a ticket that's double the normal fine. The lane closures and detour will continue for about a month. The construction is part of a larger $7 million project that includes bridge repair and seal coating.
