Interstate Speed Limit All Set for 70 MPH
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 06/16/2015
County highway crews will begin installing 70 mph speed limit signs along Wisconsin Interstates this week. Weather permitting, most of the work is expected to be done Tuesday and Wednesday, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
For the safety of all travelers, the WisDOT is discouraging media or anyone from stopping along the highway to take photos or video of the new signs.
Highway crews will install around 470 updated speed limit and related signs. Last month, the agency noted that 726 miles of Interstate would be impacted.
The new speed limit takes effect once a highway is officially posted at the higher speed.
