MN DOT Raises Speed Limit on SW MN Highways

Posted: Updated:

The Minnesota Department of Transportation says go ahead and go a bit faster on 730 miles of Minnesota highways.

MN DOT is raising the posted speed limit from 55 miles per hour to 60 along a few highways in greater Minnesota.

Officials say traffic engineers determined that higher limits don't pose safety risks.

The higher limits include the entire length of Highway 75 and a majority of Highway 59.

Both highways run through southwestern Minnesota.
