Summer Speed Limits in Effect Throughout Island Villages

With the peak of the summer travel season just around the corner, N.C. Department of Transportation crews today changed out seasonal speed limit signs along N.C. Highway 12 in several areas of Currituck and Dare counties.

The speed limits on Hatteras Island in the areas through Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo, Avon and Frisco, drop from 45 to 35 m.p.h. to account for more vehicle and pedestrian traffic during the summer months.

"This is the time of year when the population of the Outer Banks increases dramatically," said NCDOT Division Engineer Jerry Jennings. "Motorists need to drive with caution, obey all posted speed limits and be especially mindful of vehicle, pedestrian, and bicycle traffic on the roadways."

The seasonal speed limits will remain in effect until September 15.
