Drivers would be able to go 70 miles per hour on a stretch of Interstate 93 north of Concord, N.H. under a bill headed to the Senate.

The House voted 292-65 Wednesday to raise the limit from 65 mph to 70 mph from Exit 18 to the Vermont border. The current speed limit would remain the same through Franconia Notch.

The House rejected bills raising the limit as high as 75 mph on the interstate system.
