Well, everything's bigger in Texas, so people want to get to places a bit quicker.  :-D

We have a little more this month.  The speed limit will increase from 60 to 70 along I-30 on the west side of Dallas from just west of Loop 12 to just east of Sylvan, near the Mixmaster.  This is 5.5 miles.  The first (westernmost) 2.2 miles will have a speed limit of 75 in the managed lane.

Finally. Now we just have to wait for the construction on I-35E outside of LBJ and SH 183/SH 114 to be finished so those highways can be bumped up, and I think that's everything in Dallas County.

There's an update today for northern I-35E.  It's uneven and I'm not sure it makes sense.  I haven't driven that section of road since before the rebuild started, but someone familiar with it may know why the speed limits are being set this way.

I-635 to Carrollton city limit, about 2 miles: 70
Carrollton city limit to Denton County line, about 4 miles: 65
Denton County line to Corinth city limit, about 12 miles: 70
Corinth city limit to 2 miles south of I-35, about 7 miles: 65
Last 2 miles to I-35: 70

The work continues.  This month's minute order includes a speed limit increase to 70, and 75 on the managed lanes, on SH 183 from about SH 360 to past Spur 482.  That's about 14 miles.
