The importance of signage is to keep drivers informed, increase road safety and reduce accidents. With multiple construction projects taking place simultaneously, it’s vital that motorists pay attention to speed limit signage while they are travelling through areas under construction.
Although signage is generally posted in construction zones to specify the speed limit, it’s good to remember that speed limits are reduced by 10 mph or more in construction areas.
Reducing the speed limit increases the safety of motorists, pedestrians and construction crews.
However, if you happen to approach a construction zone and do not see a speed limit sign, please report the missing speed limit sign to the Public Works Traffic Division at 817-748-8370 from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Please be sure to provide a specific address or the appropriate cross streets.
