70 mph speed limit begins

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Drivers can legally zip along some rural interstate highways more quickly as a new 70 mph speed limit takes effect along some sections of roadway around Ohio.

The change beginning today raises the speed limit in some areas from 65 mph to 70 mph.

The Ohio Department of Transportation has said the speed limit is increasing on more than 570 miles of interstate highway.

The increase applies to parts of Interstates 70, 71, 75, 76, 77 and 90.

It doesn’t cover sections of those roads in major metropolitan areas like Columbus and a few smaller cities along the way.

New or updated signs will alert drivers about the higher speed limits.

A 70-mph limit already was in effect for the Ohio Turnpike stretching across the northern part of the state.
