The speed limit is changing along another stretch of the Winters Freeway in Abilene.  Approximately 3.5 miles, between Oil Belt Lane and Waldemar will increase from the current 60 miles per hour to 70.  The new signs will be going up soon, but until then motorists are reminded that the posted speed limit will be enforced.
