You’ll Soon Get to Driver Faster on US-131
US-131 will be on of the Michigan freeways where the speed limit is going up.
Earlier this month, Governor Snyder approved a bill that will raise the speed limit on freeways and rural highways around Michigan. US-131, with about 600 miles of other freeways will raise their speeds up to 75mph. While, rural highways will go from 60 to 65mph.
All speed limits will be changed over the next six months, but the Michigan Department of Transportation plans on starting those changes in the rural areas, where its proven to be safer.
According to WZZM, you'll be able to drive 75mph on US-131 by Memorial Day.
The new law also increases the speed limit for truck drivers from 60 mph to 65.
