It's official.

MLive reports that yesterday morning Governor Rick Snyder signed bills officially increasing the speed on some Michigan highways from 70, to 75 miles per hour. The increase will only happen if "safety and engineering studies" show it's safe.

Parts of the bill include:

  • Raising speed limits on 600 miles of rural, limited-access freeways from 70 to 75 mph
  • Decreasing speed limits on certain gravel roads down to 45 mph
  • Increase speed limits of "rural state trunk line highways" to 65 mph
