Maximum Speed Limit Increases to 70 MPH Monday on Two Interstates

Maximum Speed Limit Increases to 70 MPH Monday on Two Interstates

Clearfield – Motorists are advised that the maximum speed limit will be raised to 70 mph on two roadways as sign installations begin on Monday, Aug. 11.

Following engineering analysis, PennDOT is piloting the 70-mph maximum speed limit on two interstates:
• 88 miles of Interstate 80 from Exit 101 (DuBois) in Clearfield County to mile marker 189 in Clinton County; and
• 16 miles of Interstate 380 from Interstate 84 to north of Exit 8 (Tobyhanna Interchange) in Monroe County.

PennDOT will use data collected from the pilot locations while evaluating other 65-mph roadway sections for potential 70-mph implementation in the spring or summer next year. Roadway sections that can safely accommodate the increased speed could start being signed soon after the evaluations are complete.

The 70-mph speed limit was implemented on the Pa. Turnpike from Blue Mountain (Interchange 201) to Morgantown (Interchange 298) on July 22.

Passed last fall by the General Assembly and signed by Governor Tom Corbett, Act 89 of 2013 enabled PennDOT and the Pa. Turnpike Commission to raise the maximum speed limit on freeways within Pennsylvania to 70 mph. The plan invests an additional $2.4 billion to $2.5 billion into Pennsylvania’s transportation assets by its fifth year.

I guess this is another form of the governments population control, as if our population isn't decreased enough by the stupid new world war.
