Why Did EPA Allow Speed Limit Increase?

A FrontBurnervian raised the question to me about the Tollway going to 70 mph, and, frankly, I had forgotten that in 2000 the EPA had forced the NTTA to lower the speed limit by 5 miles to 60 mph. As best as I can tell from this report, the guys on the Tollway Authority seemed to have worked really hard to find other ways to meet emissions requirements, and the new electronic technology with the tollway entrances helped. (Reading the report, however, reminded me of the almost inhuman patience required to work with or for the government in any of its forms.)
