CODY, Wyo. (AP) - Drivers along Wyoming Highway 120 will get to go a bit faster, as the speed limit is increasing from 65 mph to 70 mph.

The Cody Enterprise reports (https://bit.ly/1ONn8MB ) that the Wyoming Department of Transportation is increasing the speed over the 18-mile section south of the Wyoming-Montana border.

Speeds will also increase to 70 mph on sections of U.S. 85 and Wyoming Highway 130.

The three highways will be the first to get the higher speed limit, which was approved by the Legislature last year. They were among more than 1,500 miles of highway a study showed had the best potential for safely handling the higher speed.

WYDOT will monitor speeds, crashes and traffic flows on the highways and re-evaluate the speed limit increase annually.
