SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Transportation officials say they plan to increase the speed limit to 80 mph on a stretch of Interstate 15 in southern Utah, although there are plans to lower speeds in other parts of the region.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1Lcmzp9 ) that the Utah Department of Transportation wants to raise the speed limit from 75 to 80 mph for part of the highway that runs north of St. George, from Washington City to Leeds.

It is one of the final areas to be evaluated for speed limit changes under a state law that allows 80-mph zones on rural interstates.

UDOT also plans to establish a 70 mph speed limit between the Arizona border and St. George, where limits currently range between 65 and 75 mph.
