AUBURN – Speed limit changes are expected for Nemaha County.
The state Legislature has set the maximum speed at 65 mph on major highways outside of city limits. This includes Highway 136 and Highway 75.
Speed limits on Highway 67 and the Spur 64A near Julian are also expected to increase.
The new law went into effect on July 19, but the speed limits do not change until new speed limit signs are posted.
Kyle Schneweis of the roads department said topography that includes curves or hills will impact posted speed limits.
