OHIO (www.incnow.tv) - Speed limits on many of Ohio’s interstates will be increased to 70 miles an hour on July 1st.

Governor John Kasich signed the transportation bill Monday. The bill is also expected to help create 65,000 new jobs, generate $3 billion dollars for roads, and cap some tolls. It authorizes the state to issue $1.5 billion dollars in bonds and promises that 95% of that will be spent within 75 miles of the Ohio Turnpike.
