KEVIN_224:
Here's another story about the speed limit increase, from WCSH-TV (NBC) channel 6 of Portland:

That's been done.  I drove to Bangor this weekend and a lot of I95 is at 70 mph now, especially north of Portland.

They're moving the change further south.

SectorZ:
I was up there the first week of June, and by then everything had been bumped up 5 MPH (sans Maine Tpke and I-95 north of Old Town where it's already 75). By everything, that would be all the stuff I was on, I-295, I-395, I-95 around Bangor, and US 1 in Bath/Brunswick.

yakra:
I believe bits of 395 were bumped by 10 MPH.
295 retained its 55 & 50 MPH zones from its southern terminus thru Portland; only the 65 MPH zones were increased.
I was a little surprised to see 70 MPH start that far south; I would have retained 65 until Exit 31 in Topsham.
The Scarborough Connector is now also posted for 60 MPH. On the first day of the new limit, I got stuck behind a bozo doing 35 in the 60 zone. Yeesh.

I believe the changeover happened May 27, *maybe* May 26.
