City Considering Speed Limit Reduction on Soncy

A speed limit reduction could soon be coming to Soncy.

During the most recent Amarillo City Council meeting, Council members were presented with a proposal to drop the speed limit on Soncy Road. The proposal would lower the maximum speed limit along Soncy Road just south of Hillside Road around to Hollywood Road to just west of Coulter Street from 70mph to 60mph.

The proposal comes as TXDOT has completed a study that the City says shows that overall traffic in the affected area has dropped below the posted speed limit.

City staff, TXDOT and the Amarillo Traffic Advisory Board have all indicated their support for this change.

For more information about the proposed speed limit change, please call the City of Amarillo’s Public Works department at (806) 378-6000.
