Officials want to raise speed limit on parts of I-185

By Web Staff – email | Twitter

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – If some Columbus officials have their way, you may be driving a little faster on Interstate 185.

Several city council members think the posted speed limit of 55 miles per hour in certain sections should be raised to 65 miles per hour.

In an eight to two vote Tuesday, the mayor and council moved to send a resolution to the state asking for the change.

Council is hoping the matter will be looked at during this legislative session.
