BUDA – The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has requested an extension of the school zone along Ranch-to-Market Highway 967 (RM 967), following the addition of Johnson High School.
This would extend the existing school zone limit, starting right before Carpenter Hill Elementary School, and moving it east to cover Johnson High. Buda City Council approved this proposition on Tuesday, March 23.
Costs associated with these changes will be covered by TxDOT – not by the city of Buda.
During normal hours, the speed limit is 55 mph and will be reduced to 35 mph during school zone times.
