Speed Limit Reduced on Highway 302

TEXAS (Local 2/Fox 24) - Slow down. That is the message from the Texas Department of Transportation after announcing the speed limit will be reduced on portions of Highway 302. 

The speed reduction will be implemented on Highway 302 in Ector Winkler, Loving and Reeves counties, according to the release from TxDOT. 

“This is being done solely in the interest of safety for the traveling public,” Odessa District Engineer John Speed said. “We recognize that some will not appreciate this decision, but we feel it is the best course of action in terms of safety. We encourage motorists to follow all traffic laws and exercise patience when using this key energy sector corridor.”

Officials say the speed limit will be dropped to 65 miles per hour and sings are expected to be installed this week.
