You can now drive 70 miles an hour on sections of Interstate 55 north of Springfield.
The signage reflecting the state’s new higher highway speed limit have gone up on stretches of I-55 in Logan County. But IDOT says the process of changing out the signs statewide has been slowed down by the severe winter weather earlier this week.
There won't be any new signage going up in the immediate Springfield area. State transportation officials decided to keep the speed limit at 65 on Interstates 55 and 72 adjacent to the Capital City, based on engineering and traffic studies.
