Higher speed limits coming to Arkansas

The Arkansas Department of Transportation is raising the speed limit on highways and interstates. State highway limits will be raised five miles per hour. Interstates inside the city will be 65 MPH and outside, 75 MPH.

Opponents of the increase cited safety concerns, and the Highway Commission has committed to monitor the safety of the motoring public as the speed limits go up.

“The study indicated that it was reasonably safe to do so. With the increase in vehicle safety, we have measures in place that increase the safety of the highways like wire safety, rumble strips,” Rex Vines, ArDOT spokesperson, said.

The increase will take effect when all the current speed limit signage has changed, which is expected take a couple of months.
