Idahoans Can Expect Higher Speeds in Utah

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Get ready to rev your engine if you’re driving on rural Utah interstates. Utah is increasing the speed limit to 80 mph on several stretches of highways around the state. The state legislature approved the new, faster zones during the last session.

The change was spurred by a Utah Department of Transportation study that found that fewer crashes occurred on the existing stretches of highway with 80 mph speed limits. The new fast zones include Interstate 15 from Brigham City to the Idaho border in northern Utah and Interstate 80 from the Nevada border to Utah Route 36 in eastern Utah.

Speeds will also be increased on Interstate 15 between Santaquin and North Leeds in central-southern Utah. The 75 mph zones remain on that stretch through two mountain passes and Cedar City.
