Speed limits on I-90 in Lake County reduced to 50 mph due to weather conditions

LAKE COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - The Ohio Department of Transportation reduced the I-90 speed limit to 50 miles per hour in Lake County for Monday morning's commute due to the road conditions.

The 50 miles per hour zone on I-90 extends from State Route 44 to State Route 528.

The temporary speed reduction was enforced Sunday night and into Monday morning.

With impending snow accumulation, the driving conditions are likely to worsen. ODOT has reduced the limit to lower speeds during other recent snow storms.

ODOT started testing the variable speed limits this winter in an effort to reduce winter weather crashes along the notoriously dangerous stretch of I-90.
