The Ohio Department of Transportation plans to make changes to speed limit signs on rural interstates as soon as possible, the Columbus Dispatch reports.

The changes are expected to be made within two days of the July 1 increase that was signed into law by Gov. John Kasich last week. The changes to the current law will increase speed limits on rural interstates from 65 to 70 mph and allows some two-lane highways to be changed from 55 mph speed limits to 60 mph.

While the start and end points for the changes have not been set and cost analyses are still being completed, the department believes the changes will be completed on time.
