BROWN COUNTY - Drivers headed south on Highway 41 in the De Pere area will be able to speed up soon.
The Department of Transportation says the speed limit will return to 65 miles per hour between County G and Orange Lane when the third lane opens up. This is expected to happen by Wednesday.
The speed limit on the northbound lanes in the area will remain at 55 miles per hour as repairs continue on the Scheuring Road overpass. A truck damaged the bridge last year and repairs are expected to last until mid-October. The truck owner's insurance is covering the cost of the repairs.
The stretch from Orange Lane to County G is one of four stages of the Highway 41 expansion project in Brown County. Work began in March 2012, and the DOT says it finished on time and on budget.
The DOT reminds drivers that the speed limit on the highway between County G and Velp Ave. remains at 55 miles per hour, and that no speed limits will officially increase anywhere until signs are put up.
