Will area highway speed limits increase?
A few legislatures are supporting House Bill 51, which centers on increasing the speed limit to 70 mph on some rural highways.
But any proposed increase to 70 mph shouldn't occur anywhere around Erie, Huron, Ottawa or Sandusky counties, Ohio Department of Transportation spokeswoman Christine Myers said.
The proposed increase is suggested for interstates on the federal highway system, outside of urban locations. This would include interstates 71, 75, 77, 90 and others.
The Ohio Turnpike, which is interstates 80 and 90, is already 70 mph.
