    Default Eastern Oregon speed limits as of March 2016

    2 lane highways 197, 97, 20, 26 and 31 will have a speed limit of 65 for automobiles.

    I-84 and hwy 95 will have a speed limit of 70.


    And I thought it was in effect last weekend.

    It appears that the increased speed limits are currently in effect on I-5, but higher than those you posted!?

    There is a lot of confusing info on the web.

    I am not sure about I-5 but what I posted seems to be correct as per:

    I was just kidding about I-5, but you would think the speed limit was much higher when driving between Portland and Salem. Eighty mph is not unusual.

    There must be some inherant upper limit to how fast people will drive (like how fast your car can go or you crash?), but it seems like lots of drivers will try for 5, 10, whatever over the limit no matter what it is. The limit on I-84 in southern Idaho is 80.

    Here is a bit from an Idaho Statesman newspaper a year ago... "Some troopers noticed that as soon as the speed limit went to 80 mph, some drivers took that as a green light to go 90 mph or faster. ISP reports it has issued more speeding tickets on the faster freeway sections compared with the same period last year, but exact numbers weren't available."
