Hwy 16 on the Kerrville side
The posted speed limit is 55 mph and does not increase to 70 mph until past the entrance to Lady Bird Park. Both state and local police are quick to ticket motorists who succumb to the temptation to hit 70 mph because the city of Fredericksburg is behind them and the view is of open countryside. This portion of Hwy 16 is ticketed in Both directions. Motorists coming from Kerrville need to be aware of the speed limit change to 55 mph from 70 mph.
