If you're taking a road trip to Wisconsin any time soon, you may not have to listen to cries of "are we there yet?" from the back seat for quite as long – speed limit signs on many of the state's highways could read "70 mph" by summer.
A freshly passed bill raising the speed limit on Wisconsin's interstate highway system is now on its way to the governor's desk for a final signature, the Green Bay Press Gazette reports.
The measure cleared the State Assembly earlier this week.
According to the Gazette, Department of Transportation officials plan to have the new signs posted by the time the summer tourist season kicks off.
The current speed limit on the interstate system is 65, reports the Duluth News Tribune, adding that it will cost an estimated $238,663 to install the new signs around Wisconsin.
Hold your horses, though – not all highways are included in the increase. According to the Chicago Tribune, if the bill is signed into law, the speed limit will be raised only on four-lane roads with entrance and exit ramps, as opposed to those with "at-grade" access.
