At Tuesday’s regularly scheduled Melissa City Council meeting, the speed limit on U.S. Highway 75 through Melissa was raised to 70 mph by the Council. The ordinance altering the speed limit comes after a speed study was done by the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles through that corridor that found the current speed of 65 mph could safely be raised to 70 mph.

The Council also approved the final plat and the final engineering site plan of the Buc-ee’s addition located northeast of the intersection of Davis Road and U.S. Highway 75. The Council also approved an ordinance amendment modifying the previous site plan submitted for Buc-ee’s that adjusts the parking.
