Now that state lawmakers have increased the speed limit on the northern stretch of I-93 to 70 miles per hour, a Manchester Republican wants to make that the limit on two other New Hampshire roadways.
North Country representatives were split on a bill that would raise the speed limit on parts of I-93 to 70 miles per hour.
As NHPR reported the bill - HB 146 - passed the House 292-65. It would allow 70 mph from Exit 18 north with the exception of a two-lane stretch through the Franconia Notch.
Drivers would be able to go 70 miles per hour on a stretch of Interstate 93 north of Concord, N.H. under a bill headed to the Senate.
