CLEARFIELD, Pa. -- Motorists will be able to legally go faster along Interstate 80 beginning Monday as PennDOT works to switch signs along 88 miles of the roadway to increase the speed limit from 65 to 70 miles per hour.

PennDOT authorized the speed limit increase on I-80 in late July.

Eighty-eight miles of the highway between mile marker 101 in DuBois, Clearfield County, and mile marker 189 near Loganton, Clinton County, will see the increase.

PennDOT will be testing the area to see if 70 mph will be expanded to other highways in the state.

In addition, parts of I-380 in northeastern Pennsylvania will see the speed limit increase.

Part of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, between the Blue Mountain and Morgantown interchanges, was raised to 70 mph in late July.

Other highways in the state, including I-70 in Bedford and Fulton Counties and I-70 and parts of I-79 in western Pennsylvania remain 55 mph.
