Speed limit changes in parts of Lubbock

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Speed limits inside the city will likely change along three major stretches of highway.

TxDOT studied possible changes along 4th Street between Quincy Avenue and Research Boulevard in west Lubbock. Along some portions TxDOT wants to increase speed limits by 5 miles per hour. Along other stretches, TxDOT recommends slowing down 5 miles per hour.

It's the same thing along Inler Avenue; some areas of increase and some areas of decrease. TxDOT wants to set speed limits along Marsha Sharp Freeway's main lanes from Avenue Q to West Loop 289.

They would be set to 60 miles per hour. The citizens traffic commission already approved these ideas. City council takes up the matter on Wednesday.
