You should be seeing more 70 mile-an-hour speed limit signs going up around the state in the next few days.
The process of putting up new signs… reflecting the higher limit on most Illinois interstates… was slowed down considerably by last week’s snow and bitter cold temperatures. But some signs have gone up… including some on a stretch of Interstate 55 in Logan County.
And, of course, there won’t be any signs going up in the immediate Springfield area. The speed limit on the interstates directly adjacent to the city is staying at 65.
