  Original Published: 6/26/2013Speed limits all across Ohio are set to change on July 1st as the limit on rural interstates will increase from 65 to 70 miles per hour. The speed increase is part of the new Ohio transportation budget, signed into law by Gov. John Kasich in April, which goes into effect on Monday.  The new 70mph speed will apply to Interstate 71 between Delaware and Medina. According to a press release from the Ohio Department of Transportation, 317 signs will be unveiled along Ohio's interstates on July 1st alerting drivers to the speed changes.  An amendment of the Ohio state budget, which is still being debated by the Ohio General Assembly, may also increase speed limits on state highways considered to be interstate "lookalikes," meaning they share many of the same features and are constructed to the same specifications as interstates.
