The increase of speed limits on certain Illinois Interstates will take effect January 1, 2014 according to the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) and Illinois Tollway. The speed limits will increase from 65 to 70 miles-per-hour on a 64-mile stretch of the Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88) and on a 15-mile segment of the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90).
IDOT expects about 900 new 70 mph sign will be installed between January 2 and January 17, 2014.
After the first of the year, nearly 87 percent of Interstate highways and 98 percent of rural Interstates will have the 70 mile an hour speed limit.
