Truck speed limits changing in Illinois

| December 30, 2011

Truck speed limits on non-interstate highways in Illinois will increase Jan. 1.

Big rig speeds on various four-lane roads will rise to 65 mph from 55 mph on more rural roads outside of Chicago, matching the passenger car speed limit.

Truckers are advised to hold off on increasing speeds until road signs have been changed, the Illinois Department of Transportation said.
