Virginia to raise some speed limits
Virginia will increase speed limits to 70 mph on 680 miles of interstates by the end of the year, Michael Bolden reports on the Dr. Gridlock blog.
Gov. Robert F. McDonnell announced the change Wednesday. It will affect interstates located in areas that are rural or less populated. It includes segments of Interstate 66, from Faquier County to Interstate 81 and Interstate 95 from south of Fredricksburg to Ashland and from Prince George County to the North Carolina border.
The Virginia Department of Transportation outlined the plan at a meeting of the Commonwealth Transportation Board on Wednesday.
