Speed limit goes up on US 165

Reported by KPLC Staff:

Now that construction work on US 165 between I-10 and Fenton is substantially complete the speed limit has been raised from 45 miles per hour to 65 miles per hour.  The roadway has been widened from two lanes to four lanes.

Construction is not fully complete yet. There are a few minor work items that could require some lane closures and a reduced speed limit when workmen are working.

Motorists are urged to be considerate of the workers by reducing their speed and exercising caution when driving through those areas.
