Speed Limit Increased In Northwest Suburbs

Drivers are going faster, legally, on the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway in the northwest suburbs.

The Illinois Tollway raised the speed limit on two stretches of the tollway, also known as Interstate 90. Now cars can travel 70 mph — the legal maximum speed limit in Illinois — between Des Plaines and Elgin, and all vehicles can go 60 mph between Rosemont and Des Plaines, said Tollway spokesman Dan Rozek.
