City approves 15 mph speed limit by high school

Posted: Thursday, October 17, 2019 7:00 am

The City of Alpine held its regular city council meeting on Oct. 15 and vehicle traffic and speed limits were the main topics discussed.

The council discussed a proposed ordinance establishing a 15 mph speed limit in the school zone adjacent to the Alpine High School along State Highways 118 and 223, down from 35 mph. No residents were present to give input, but Interim Police Chief Darrell Losoya addressed the council. Council, Ward 5, Rick Stephens asked Losoya if there had been any accidents at that location, and Losoya said he found two accidents this year, but not related to the school zone. However, Losoya said the crash report information was obtained through the Texas Department of Transportation, and he was unable to obtain all the crash report data. He still felt that a school zone on Hwy. 223, or Loop Road, and Fightin’ Buck Avenue was needed for the safety of the students and staff.
