The Kentucky Transportation is considering raising the speed limit on the U.S. 60 Bypass in Owensboro.  And the change could happen very quickly!

The measure on the table seeks to increase the speed limit from 55 mph to 65 mph and Keith Todd, Transportation Cabinet spokesperson, says the change could happen within one to two months.

The proposed increase will cover a 13-mile stretch of roadway- from its start on the west side of Owensboro to the east side of town near the Hawes Way Truck Stop.
