Bill would boost speed limit to 70 m.p.h. on Mass. interstates


Representative Dan Winslow wants to raise the speed limit on certain stretches of interstate highways in Massachusetts from 65 miles per hour to 70 miles per hour. “Our roads are designed for 70; our cars are designed for faster than 65,” Winslow told the Committee on Transportation Tuesday. If approved, the bill would increase the speed limit on parts of the Massachusetts Turnpike, Interstate 91, and Interstate 95. Winslow’s bill is cosponsored by Representatives Angelo Scaccia of Hyde Park, Randy Hunt of Sandwich, and Cleon Turner of Dennis, a former police officer in Maine and on Cape Cod.
