Speed Limit

A 75 mph speed limit sign is seen Wednesday in Harker Heights.

HARKER HEIGHTS — After about 18 months of the speed limit being set at 65 miles per hour, the stretch of eastbound U.S. Highway 190 beginning at the Harker Heights-Killeen has a 75 mph speed limit again.

Texas Department of Transportation spokesman Ken Roberts confirmed the news Wednesday, and said that the speed limit was dropped to 65 mph while construction on the freeway was ongoing. Now that the construction, which stretched from the exit for W.S. Young Drive to Farm-to-Market 2410, is completed, the speed limit returned to normal, Roberts said.

Might as well change it to 75 mph through Killeen also. That seems to be the average speed on that drag strip we call I-14/190.
