Tom Green Co. Commissioners Set to Drastically Reduce Speed Limits on Some Roads


SAN ANGELO – Tom Green County Commissioners Tuesday will hold a public hearing on proposed reductions to speed limits on certain County Roads after some serious crashes and concerns voiced by area residents. 

According to the agenda for the regular meeting, the Court will 'Convene a public hearing to discuss lowering the speed limit on the following county roads: Fairview School Road from 45 mph to 30 mph; Jameson Road from 60 mph to 50 mph; reducing to 40 mph at the Hobbs intersection east all the way to US 67; and Hobbs Road from 60mph to 40 mph.'

The purpose of the public hearing is to gather input from County residents about the proposed changes to the speed limits.
