Speed limit reduced on Brunswick County road

SUNSET BEACH — A new speed limit is now posted in Sunset Beach, affecting Seaside Road. The reduction was made for safety reasons, according to the N.C. Department of Transportation. 

Motorists are now required to travel 45 miles per hour instead of 55 along the two miles of the road between U.S. 17 and Old Georgetown Road. Signs were installed n last week.

“After a citizen inquired, the department investigated the roadway and its crashes and based on federal guidelines, determined a reduced speed was warranted to improve safety,” the NCDOT said in a release.
