How long does it take turtle eggs to hatch?

We saw a turtle get hit by a car so we picked her up and took her home. We don't know what kind of turtle she was (green with yellow stripes).
However, she was too injured to be saved but she had eggs that looked llike she was about to lay. We were able to retrieve 7 out of 8 eggs. We took a storage container filled with sand and buried each egg about 3 iinches. Approx. how long will it take the eggs to hatch ?

All about temperature and proper humidity. Don't know much more than that.

You need to keep the eggs ata a temperature slightly above room temerature and they sould hatch in 70 or 90 days.
