According to WILX-TV 10, Michigan drivers will soon be able to drive a little faster on some roads and freeways.

In January, Governor Rick Snyder signed a bill requiring M-dot and the Michigan State Police to increase speeds on certain roads.

The two agencies conducted a safety study, and found 600 freeway miles where drivers can go 75 miles per hour, and 900 non freeway miles where drivers can go 65.  M-dot says the new speed limits will be posted sometime in May.
