Council adjusts speed limits on stretches of 98th, Erskine

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Lubbock City Council members amended some inconsistent speed limits.

The new stretch of road on 98th Street from Milwaukee to Upland will be set at 50mph, to match what the speed limit is for much of the street. 

Also, 19th Street from Canton to Memphis will be 50mph. Erskine Street, from Indiana to the Texas Tech Parkway, will drop to 45mph since that's what the road is built for.
