N.C. Department of Transportation crews have now reinstalled off-season speed limit signs along sections of N.C. 12 in several parts of Currituck and Dare counties.

On Thursday, speed limits in areas through the tri-villages of Rodanthe, Waves and Salvo, as well as Corolla and Frisco, returned to 45 mph from their seasonal speed limits of 35 mph. Off-season speed limits also resumed in several areas of Cape Hatteras National Seashore, such as the area near the Haulover Parking Lot south of Avon.

One exception to the change is the section of N.C. 12 from Duck to the Currituck County line, which will now remain at 35 mph year-round due to safety concerns.

However, motorists are advised to continue driving with caution, as there are still many motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians on the Outer Banks in the fall season.

Seasonal speed limits will return on May 15, 2024.

    Oh but not southern Shores. They have to make traffic back up for miles in hopes of getting a new bridge.

    Keeping the speed limit at 35 during the off-season, from the Dare/Currituck Co. line, all the way to the 158 Bypass makes little sense to me. Not directly blaming our seasonal visitors, but most every accident that has occurred in this 10 mile stretch has been during the rental season. Way too many vehicles on this road during this time. So why should we locals be hindered to it now taking even longer to get anywhere during the the quiet off-season when there are way fewer vehicles on the road?
