Jeffrey D. Allred, Deseret News
SALT LAKE CITY — A bill to increase the speed drivers can travel on some areas of Utah freeways passed unanimously Thursday in a state legislative committee.
HB83, sponsored by Rep. Jim Dunnigan, R-Taylorsville, would expand the portion of I-15 where the Utah Department of Transportation may establish a posted speed limit that exceeds 75 mph and would add portions of I-80 and I-84 as well.
Areas of consideration on I-15 include Santaquin to St. George and Brigham City to the Idaho border. Also under review is I-84 from Tremonton to the Idaho border, along with Grantsville to Wendover on I-80.
The House Transportation Committee unanimously supported the measure, which now moves forward for consideration by the full House.
