The speed limit increase has finally made its way into the Upper Peninsula.

The Michigan Department of Transportation finished putting the new speed limit signs up on US-2 from St. Ignace to Rapid River. Speed limit have been increased from 55 to 65.

Any areas where speeds were reduced in the past will remain reduced. The next area to be getting the speed limit increase should be M-28 as they work their way westward.

MDOT is encouraging drivers to follow whatever the posted speed is despite the future change.
