TOLEDO, Ohio (WWJ) – The Buckeye State is following Michigan’s lead when it comes to variable work-zone speed limits in high commuter traffic areas.

The Toledo Blade reports that drivers will find the work-zone program in place on I-75 construction zones near I-280 in Toledo, with flashing lights indicating when the lower speed limit is in effect.

When the lights are not flashing, drivers will be allowed to travel through the zones at normal speeds.

According to the Ohio Department of Transportation, the recently-implemented program will relieve congestion when workers are not present, but when they are, it will emphasize the need for drivers to be especially careful when traveling through construction zones.

Ohio’s program became law September 10. In addition to Michigan, a similar program is in use in Indiana.
