July 14, 1996

An article on increasing speed limits on U.S. 50 in Friday's edition of The Sun in Anne Arundel stated incorrectly the federal government's position last year on increasing the limit on the highway.

Federal highway officials approved the increase from 55 mph to 65 mph on the 8.57-mile stretch between Interstate 97 and the junction with U.S. 301 and Route 3, but the State Highway Administration decided to delay the increase until construction along the road and a one-year study of the effect of higher speed limits on rural interstates were complete.

The Sun regrets the error.
