Council approves new highway speed limit

GREENVILLE — Motorists will be able to drive a little faster when they are heading into or out of south Greenville on State Highway 34.

The Greenville City Council Tuesday approved a higher speed limit for the roadway between FM 1570 and the south city limits.

The council voted to accept recommendations  from  the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), which City Manager Massoud Ebrahim came about as a result of a just completed traffic study.

TxDOT recommended raising the speed limit from FM 170 to the city limits on State Highway 34 from the current 50 mph to 55 mph.

All other speed limits on State Highway 34/Wesley Street, starting at Business U.S. 69D, would remain the same as currently posted.

The measure passed on a unanimous vote of the council.
