Speed limit increasing to 70 mph in Indian River

You can't put your pedal to the metal, but you will soon be able to increase your speed on I-95 in Indian River County.

The speed limit will return to 70 mph May 18 at 5 p.m. from south of SR 60 to the Indian River/Brevard County Line, according to a news release from the Florida Department of Transportation.

Although a road widening project is nearing completion, FDOT asks drivers to continue to be cautious, slow down and stay alert while traveling through the construction zone and on I-95.
