Hendersonville Lightning: Sign is up, speed is down in Flat Rock

From the Lightning:

An effort over many years to lower the speed limit in the leisurely paced Village of Flat Rock has come to fruition.

The NCDOT erected the new speed limit signs this week lowering the speed from 35 to 25 mph from Woodfield Inn Lane to just north of the Flat Rock Playhouse driveway — a stretch that sees slowing and turning traffic during Playhouse shows and pedestrians close to the road along Little Rainbow Road.

At the request of the Village Council, the NCDOT last year conducted a study of that stretch of Greenville Highway and agreed that the speed limit ought to be lowered, council member Tom Carpenter told the council in December.

  1. Good luck with that. I was the solo driver who use to do 35-MPH and was the bane of other drivers who regularly do 50-MPH on that stretch.
