New speed limit on SH 289 through Sherman

SHERMAN, Tex. (KXII) - The Sherman City Council decided to lower the speed limit on state highway 289.

At Monday's city council meeting the council decided to lower the speed limit on a stretch of SH 289 from 75 mph to 70 mph.

The council made their decision after a TxDOT study found the speed was too high on the roadway.

Crews will begin changing the signs on the three mile stretch as soon as possible.
