Lewisville City Council voted during an Aug. 2 meeting to establish new speed limits on two sections of Josey Lane.

The council decided to set a speed limit of 50 mph from 1,900 feet south of State Highway 121 to the south city limits with Carrollton (see green line on first map below). This decision was made after a staff study concluded that the average speed on that stretch of land was 54 mph.

In addition, the council decided on a school zone speed limit of 35 mph from 500 feet north of the north driveway for Memorial Elementary School to 500 feet south of Lake Falls Terrace (see orange line on second map below). Memorial Elementary School is a new Lewisville ISD school opening for the 2021-22 school year. The previous speed limit on Josey near the school was 50 mph, which has now been amended to 35 mph for student safety.
