DOT shuns 70 mph concept for most state 4-lanes; Witnesses filmed girls’ fight rather than calling 911; 10 more state news stories

MADISON -- Before the politicians spoke up, the state Department of Transportation studied the idea of raising the speed limit to 70 mph on Wisconsin four-lanes.

The agency said all four rural interstates – 94, 90, 43 and 39 – have lower crash rates than other four-lanes. So DOT officials said those four would be the likely candidates for the higher speed limit, along with Hwy. 41 which is in the process of being improved to interstate standards.
