CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Transportation officials have increased the speed limit to 80 mph along a 17-mile stretch of Interstate 90 in northeast Wyoming.
The Wyoming Department of Transportation says the increase affects I-90 between the east side of Sundance and the South Dakota border.
Department officials are reminding drivers that a 75 mph speed limit remains in place on an adjoining 20-mile stretch of the interstate between Sundance and Inyan Kara.
Other sections of I-90 with 80 mph limits include 64 miles between Buffalo and Gillette and 40 miles between Gillette and Inyan Kara. The new speed limit also is in effect on 268 miles of Interstate 25 and 116 miles of Interstate 80.
The transportation department began increasing the speed limit on some interstates that pass through Wyoming in July 2014.
