Ohio Interstates Get 70 MPH Speed Limit

July 9, 2013

The speed limit on 570 miles of rural Ohio interstate highways increased to 70 mph from 65 mph on Monday under a new state law that allows the Ohio Department of Transportation to increase the speed on all nonurban interstates.

The Ohio Turnpike, which is maintained by its own state agency, already has a 70 mph speed limit throughout its length.
