Due to a request from the National Park Service, NCDOT changed the speed limits today between Avon & Buxton and between Hatteras & Frisco from 55 to 45 miles per hour. There have been numerous near-miss incidents between vehicles, vehicles and pedestrians, and vehicles and parked cars this season that have necessitated this change. These are seasonal speed limits that will revert back to 55 mph on September 15.
