The location "just outside of Toledo" where the hammer can go down just a bit farther is Milepost 191, or about a mile south of the I-475/US-23 junction in Perrysburg. The 70-mph zone will run 30 miles south to MP161, just north of Findlay, and resume at MP151 south of the US-68 junction south of town. In the Lima area, the current 65-mph speed limit will remain from MP-130, near the Bluelick Road interchange, to MP-117, near the Cridersville interchange.
The 70-mph zone south of Cridersville will extend to Milepost 75, which is just north of Troy. The 65-mph limit will remain in effect the rest of the way to the Ohio River.
Legislation allowing the 70-mph limit on rural freeways in Ohio specifically applies to Interstates, so freeways like US-24 southwest of Toledo to Napoleon and State Rt. 2 east of Camp Perry will continue to have a 65-mph limit. The Ohio Turnpike raised its speed limit to 70 several years ago. Also excluded are urban-beltway Interstates, like I-280 and I-475 in metro Toledo, for which existing speed limits will be maintained.
