Speed Limits On Iowa Highway And Interstates Could Be Going Up
If you have the need for speed, you are not alone. Some Iowa state lawmakers are looking into raising the speed limits on highways and interstates statewide.
The bill, should it pass, would raise the limit for the areas by 5 miles per hour. That would bump speeds on interstates from 70 to 75 miles per hour.
The Des Moines Register reports it would cost $2.3 million to replace speed limit signs to reflect the speed increase.
The House Transportation Subcommittee examined the bill yesterday, and recommended postponing it for the time being.
