Speed limit changes are coming to Texas highways.

Under a new law that goes effect on September first, certain highways will go from 70 miles per hour to 75 miles per hour.

You'll start seeing the changes in the coming months.

In terms of which roadways will see the new speed limits, that hasn't been decided yet.

Some studies will be done to determine which roads are the safest to bump up.

Also included with the new bill is the slashing of night time speeds.

The law begins on September first.
