DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. — The Illinois Tollway says signs along the far western segments of its roads now reflect the new 65 mph speed limit for certain trucks.
The speed limit for trucks that weigh more than 4 tons increased to 65 mph from 55 mph along rural interstates in Illinois on Jan. 1. The state tollway says that means the speed limit for those trucks has changed on portions of Interstate 90, or the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway, and Interstate 88, or the Reagan Memorial Tollway.
The Illinois Tollway says motor homes, campers and trailers also can travel at 65 mph in the designated areas.
The 55 mph speed limit remains in force for the rest of the Illinois Tollway.
