Members of the Kentucky Department of Highways District 10 traffic crew made the state's changeover to a 70 mph speed limit official when they changed signs, including this one on the Mountain Parkway in Powell County, from the old 65 mph limit to the new 70 mph limit on Tuesday morning. The Mountain Parkway between Interstate 64 to Exit 43 in Clark, Powell and Wolfe counties now has the new, higher speed limit. The District 10 crew spent the day in Clark, Powell and Wolfe counties, changing signage to reflect the new limit.
