70 MPH in Wisconsin Passed
Governor Scott Walker has signed a bill that allows state transportation officials to raise the speed limit to 70 mph on some Wisconsin roads. But, here's the catch before you get a ticket.
Governor Scott Walker signed the measure Wednesday. It passed the Senate and Assembly on voice votes earlier this year. So where can you roll at 70 MPH in Wisconsin? There are designated highways.
The Department of Transportation can raise the speed limit to 70 mph only on four-lane roads that have entrance and exit ramps. You can only travel at 70 mph once the signs are posted which should be completed by the middle of June.
