Get Ready To Start Going Faster on Michigan Roads
It was passed through earlier today that the speed limit on some Michigan Roadways will be jumping to 75 MPH.
Gov. Rick Snyder on Thursday signed bills allowing this today along with some other speed hikes. Speed limits on gravel roads in counties with populations over 1 million would decrease to 45 miles per hour. Up to 900 miles of rural state trunk line highways would see hikes to 65 miles per hour.
In addition, the Michigan Dept of Transportation and Dept of State Police to raise speed limits to 75 miles per hour on rural, limited-access freeways if a safety study concludes it would be better.
