Get ready to go faster on many of Ohio's highways.
The speed limit in some areas goes up to 70 mph monday.
But if you think you're going to fly down Route 8, ODOT's Brent Kovacs says think again.
"It's not going to be 70 in Downtown Akron, those speed limits are going to be the same," he said. "Also in construction zones, those are going to be those construction zone speed limits."
Kovacs tells NewsChannel 5 crews will hang the new 70 mph signs as fast as they can.
Highway Patrol Sgt. David Garber said more speed could bring more problems.
"There's a potential for a crash increase, especially the younger generation," he said. "Any time the speed increases, we know that everyone doesn't follow the speed limit so that just increases their speed."
Interstate 76 will go up to 70 mph east of State Route 44. Interstate 77 will hit 70 mph south of Fohl Road in Stark County.
