80 Mph OK on Some Wyoming Highways Starting Today

July 1, 2014

Motorists traveling in Wyoming can go a little faster on certain stretches of interstate highways.

Wyoming Department of Transportation crews began changing speed limit signs along three sections of Interstates 25, 80 and 90 to 80 mph.

The higher speed limit will not be the entire length of the highways, but only in areas where WYDOT has deemed it safe.

The 75 mph speed limit will remain in force until the new 80 mph signs are in place.

WYDOT hopes to complete sign changeover work by the beginning of the Fourth of July holiday weekend.
