Christmas travel: I-90 speed limits dropped to 60 mph in Lake County due to road conditions

LAKE COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - The Ohio Department of Transportation reduced the I-90 speed limit to 60 miles per hour in Lake County on Christmas due to the hazardous winter road conditions.

The 60 miles per hour zone on I-90 extends from State Route 44 to State Route 528.

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.
