Speed limit changes go into effect

Expect to see more 70 mph signs across Ohio.

Motorists will be able to drive a little faster on many Ohio highways including I-75 starting July 1.

The speed limit will go up from 65 mph to 70 mph on portions of six interstates across Ohio.

The Ohio Department of Transportation says the increase applies to parts of Interstates 70, 71, 75, 76, 77 and 90 but doesn't include sections of those roads in major populated areas.

Motorists will have to slow down to 65 mph while on I-75 as they pass through Findlay and Lima.

A map of all the highways where the speed limit is changing is available on the ODOT website.
