Speed Limit Changing In Burke

Date:

A speed limit increase has been approved by the City of Burke and signs will be placed this week by the Texas Department of Transportation’s Angelina County Maintenance Department.

The speed limit change is a result of an approved action by the Burke City Council. The change will allow for a safe traffic flow and provide continued maneuverability through the city as motorists travel US 59 south to Diboll and north to Lufkin.

The speed limit will increase from 55 miles per hour to 60 miles per hour within the city limits of Burke.

Motorists are advised to be alert to the changing speed limit and abide by all traffic control devices and signage.

The increased speed limit will take effect once signs are installed.

For more information, contact Rhonda.Oaks@txdot.gov or (936) 633-4395.
