Texas Owns Title of Highest Speed Limit With Opening of Highway 130
Remember that old Mazda commercial, “ZOOM! ZOOM! ZOOM!”? That’s what came to mind when I heard that the new 41 mile stretch of Texas Highway 130 will open today with a legal speed limit of 85 miles per hour!
The new stretch of highway runs from Mustang Ridge, 10 miles south of Austin’s International Airport, to I10, just east of Seguine. You can get a free pass on the new toll road until November 11, then it will cost you about $.15 per mile with an electronic toll tag.
