Ohio doesn’t really distinguish between interstate and non-interstate freeways for speed limits. Plenty of non-interstate freeways signed at 70 mph.
Same for Michigan, we have speed limits as high as 75 mph but they are all Interstate quality freeways even though a few are US highways. 65 mph is the max limit for non freeways.

^ Virginia is the same way, though VDOT will usually cap all the non-interstate freeways at 65 mph, despite state law permitting 70 mph on any limited access facility. The US-29 freeway near Lynchburg is posted at 70 mph though, the only non-interstate example in the state.

Florida is 70 just as interstate speeds are.

^ Are you referring to back then or present day? Because there are definitely more roads in Massachusetts asides from the Turnpike that are posted at 65 mph, and at least one at 60 mph.
Right now. It's currently 65 mph for some unknown reason and yet it can easily be 70 mph. The same goes for I-74 near Asheboro.
