I-295 May Go From 65 Mph to 75 Mph
How about a bill that would bring the speed limit on I 295 from 65 mph to 75 mph? Yes, that’s correct. The interstate that runs from just south of the Maine Mall to Gardiner may get raised 10 miles per hour. Forgive me if I’m wrong, but almost anytime there is an accident on a highway, isn’t it usually I 295? Old Town to Houlton, I get it. There is hardly any traffic up north. I 295 runs through the heart of the population of Maine. Unless there is an asterisks on this bill that would keep I 295 from exits 1-8 at 55 mph this measure in my opinion is ridiculous.
