On the west side of town, the speed limit is 50 mph from Spring Lane to just West of McGregor Lane, where the speed limit then becomes 60 mph. The stretch of highway west of McGregor to 281 is now 65 mph.
Headed into Austin, the speed limit is 60 mph from Crow Ranch Road to Nutty Brown Road. A map depicting the speed limit changes can be found on the city’s website, www.cityofdrippingsprings.com.
