PART OF THE TURNPIKE TO SEE A 70 MPH SPEED LIMIT

A portion of the Pennsylvania Turnpike will see an increase in the speed limit this Wednesday. The stretch from the Blue Mountain interchange at Shippensburg to Morgantown will see an increase in the speed limit to 70 miles per hour. The transportation law passed last year authorized the increase. The Turnpike Commission said the design of the highway in the affected area can safely accommodate the higher limit. In the meantime, PennDOT will review other highways that currently have a 65 MPH limit to see if the mark could be safely raised elsewhere. Parts of Texas have the highest speed limits in the nation at 85 miles per hour.

CARLISLE WOMAN CHARGED FOR FALSE REPORTS

A Carlisle woman is facing charges for allegedly making false reports to police. State Police at Newport say Heather Elaine Nies, 38, reported being the victim of a sexual assault last month in Howe Township, Perry County. Troopers now say that was not the case. Charges of false reports to law enforcement officers and disorderly conduct have been filed against Nies through the office of District Judge Schechterly.
