Top end Perimeter speed limit to go up to 65 mph in September

Driving 65 mph on the top half of I-285? It will soon be legal.

Come September, the maximum speed limit along 36 miles of the Perimeter within Cobb, Fulton and DeKalb counties will be raised to 65 mph, matching a speed limit increase last year on the southern half of I-285.

But during times of heavy congestion, accidents or severe weather, GDOT will use new overhead electronic signs to slow speeds to as low as 35 mph.
