Great news for Expedited Freight services in Oregon as it has been confirmed that many highways will be increasing their speed limits next week. According to the Statesman Journal website the Oregon Department of Transportation are already fully engaged in updating signage on the impacted routes. The revision will be seen across most of the Eastern half of Oregon.
The changes go into effect on March 1 and will see the speed limit raised to 65 mph on most rural highways and 70 mph on some of the major highways (full details available on the map below).
