Commuters will be traveling a little faster along one major metro Atlanta interstate.

The speed limit along Interstate 575 through Cobb and Cherokee counties is 65 mph.

But the Georgia Department of Transportation plans to change the speed limit to 70.

But don’t hit the gas just yet.

Officials said it could take a couple of months to change the speed limit and workers need to put up new signs.
