Hassan signs bill raising speed limit on parts of Interstate 93
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Starting in January, drivers can go a little faster on parts of New Hampshire's Interstate 93.
Gov. Maggie Hassan signed a bill into law Tuesday raising the speed limit effective Jan. 1 from 65 miles-per-hour to 70 miles-per-hour on I-93 from mile maker 45 between Exits 17 and 18 in Canterbury to the Vermont border. There's an exception: the stretch through Franconia Notch.
Hassan encouraged drivers to obey the new limit and keep their safety in mind and the safety of others.
Lawmakers had considered and rejected raising the speed limit on other stretches of highway. The only increase approved was for the stretch of I-93 that Hassan agreed to on Tuesday.
