AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – Drivers using the E-470 tollway on the east side of the Denver metro area will be free to drive a bit faster this weekend.

The E-470 Public Highway Authority on Thursday approved an increase in the speed limit from 70 to 75 mph.

The change is being made to give drivers more time savings and better value.

The new speed limit postings should be up by Friday.

E-470 stretches 47 miles — from Highway C-470 at Interstate 25 in Douglas County to I-25 in Thornton.

    Gee – I wonder why gasoline prices are so high? Good government – keep wasting the world’s scarce resources. Bye-bye polar bears.
