CHEYENNE, Wyoming — Motorists traveling in Wyoming will soon be able to go a little faster on certain stretches of interstate highways.

On Tuesday, Wyoming Department of Transportation crews will begin changing speed limit signs along three sections of Interstates 25, 80 and 90 to 80 mph.

The higher speed limit will not be the entire length of the highways, but only in areas where WYDOT has deemed it safe.

The 80 mph limit will be posted along a total of 268 miles of I-25, 116 miles on I-80 and 104 miles of I-90.

The 75 mph speed limit will remain in force until the new 80 mph signs are in place.

WYDOT hopes to complete sign changeover work by the beginning of the Fourth of July holiday weekend.
