TYLER – The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) announces speed limit changes for US 69 and SH 154 in Wood County. The changes come as the result of recent speed studies conducted on the roadways.

TxDOT maintenance crews will install new signs on US 69 in Mineola that will decrease the speed limit from 70 mph to 60 mph for a 0.992-mile section from just south of County Road 2311 to north of County Road 2330.

Two speed limit changes will occur on SH 154 near Quitman. The speed limit will increase from 45 mph to 55 mph at the city limits of Quitman, and increase from 60 mph to 65 mph for a 5.4-mile stretch from just north of Quitman City Limits toward Yantis.

According to TxDOT, the new speed limits, designed to promote a more efficient traffic flow, will take affect once the signs are installed. Motorists are warned to abide by the posted speed limits and other traffic control devices on this and all roadways.
