The speed limit for much of U.S. 68/Ky. 80 between Cadiz and Bowling Green will be raised from 55 miles per hour to 65 miles per hour starting the beginning of next week.

Tim Haverlick with the office of Eighth District State Representative John Tilley said Tuesday afternoon that approximately 59 miles of the highway between Cadiz and Bowling Green will have the higher speed limit.

However, he said there will be a “buffer around the cities.” The speed limit will stay at 55 miles per hour on the bypasses around Cadiz, Hopkinsville and Russellville, for example, and will generally be at the current speed limit until about a half-mile away from the cities.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Spokesman Keith Todd said Governor Steve Beshear will be part of a press conference regarding the change in Christian County at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 2, although he didn’t know where in Christian County.
