If your travel on I-675 in Saginaw County, you will soon be able to get to your destination a little bit quicker.
The Michigan Department of Transportation says the speed limit through the city will increase to 70 miles per hour this month.
Currently the limit through the city limits on the expressway is 55 mph. That stretch of roadway covers the exit for Veteran's Memorial Parkway north to Shattuck Road.
M-DOT and the Michigan State Police conducted a review, which led to the increase.
Crews will begin installing new signs, and the changes take effect once all of those signs are in place.
