Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines! The checked flag may not be dropping on I-295, but the speeds may be increasing on I-295 between Scarborough and West Gardiner. State Rep. Justin Chenette of Saco has sponsored a bill to raise the speed limit on Interstate 295 from Scarborough to West Gardiner to 75 miles per hour.The transportation committee will be taking up the bill today. In 2011, the legislature passed a law allowing the speed limit to go to 75 mph on Interstate 95 from Old Town to Houlton.

Do you support the increased speed limit for I-295 or are you against raising it? Let us know!
