Speed Limit Raised on Kensington

November 17, 2010 Updated Nov 17, 2010 at 4:15 PM EDT

BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - Beginning Thursday, drivers will be able to travel a bit faster when taking the Kensington Expressway in the city.

The New York State Department of Transportation found in a recent study that drivers routinely travel over the 50mph speed limit, and that crashes would be less likely with the higher speed limit.

The Kensington Expressway is a part of U.S. Route 33 that runs from Downtown Buffalo to the airport in Cheektowaga.
