THE DALLES, Ore. — People driving in some sections of central and eastern Oregon will soon be able to go a bit faster on the highways, without getting a ticket.

HB 3402 will allow drivers to travel 5-10 mph faster in the select areas, starting March 1, 2016.

On Interstate 84 between The Dalles and the Idaho border, the speed limit will increase from 65 mph to 70 mph.

Several secondary highways in central and eastern Oregon will also see speed limits increased, including portions of U.S. 20, U.S. 26, U.S. 95, U.S. 97, U.S. 197, U.S. 395, OR 31, OR 78 and OR 205.

The Oregon Department of Transportation created a detailed map showing exactly where the speed limit changes will take place.  Click here to view the map
