Driving in Texas is about to get even faster, at least for drivers along one section of one highway in Central Texas.
Today, workmen began hanging the 85 mph speed limit signs along a new 40-mile toll road that runs from Austin to Seguin. This new section of Texas Highway 130 is scheduled to open by Nov. 11.
This speed limit will give Texas the fastest speed limit in the Western Hemisphere, according to some. Currently the highest legal speed on any road in the USA is 80 mph.
