Speed limits change on I-75 in Georgia

| 7/16/2007

Anyone driving through Northwest Georgia may want to keep their foot light on the accelerator.

The state Department of Transportation recently announced that it is dropping the speed limit on Interstate 75 between Exits 269 and 278 from 65 mph to 55 mph because of roadwork in the area.

The roadwork is part of an 8.9-mile concrete paving project along Interstate 75 in Cobb, Cherokee and Bartow counties.

The project has been under way on certain parts of the highway since 2006, and is expected to be completed by April 2009.
