Effective Friday, the speed limit along U.S. Highway 190 / Interstate 14, eastbound and westbound, through the city of Harker Heights, will be reduced from 75 mph to 65 mph.

The 65-mph signs were installed Friday by the Texas Department of Transportation at the request of the Heights City Council, which approved an ordinance lowering the speed limit in May amid concerns from residents.

For information, call the Heights Public Works Department at City Hall at 254-953-5600.
