Ill. Tollway approves 70 MPH speed limit on rural section of road

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

70 miles per hour could soon become a reality in Illinois, but nowhere near Chicago.

Under a proposal approved Thursday, 70 mph speed limits could begin as early as January for a 6-mile segment of the Tri-state Tollway in Lake County. A 64-mile segment of the Reagan Memorial Tollway and a 15-mile segment of the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway could also see the increase.

The proposal must still be approved by the joint committee on administrative rules and the Illinois Department of Transportation.
