    You may want to rethink putting the pedal to the metal on Interstate 70.

    Work zone speed cameras are going up around Frederick, Md. to deter speeding. The move is part of a $40-million project of safety improvements in that corridor.

    The State Highway Administration says the cameras will start running Monday. Warnings will be issued for the first 21 days. Drivers going 12 mph or more above the 55-mph speed limit will be ticketed starting in mid-May.

    The I-70 corridor project includes two new bridges over South Street, as well as improved ramp access, new merge lanes and a new railroad crossing.

    Work should be completed by the summer of 2013.
