The speed limit on rural interstates and parkways would increase from 65 to 70 miles per hour, under a bill that has been approved by both the Senate and the House.

The measure needs approval by the senate of a minor change made in the House before it goes to Governor Fletcher for his consideration. The governor supports the bill.

The new speed limits won't go into effect until after safety studies were completed.
