Speed limit to be reduced on Catfish Lake Road after numerous fatalities

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. - The speed limit will be reduced on a busy roadway in Craven and Jones counties after several fatalities and a number of injuries.

The North Carolina Department of Transportations says that, weather permitting, speed limit signs will be placed along the approximately 15 miles of Catfish Lake Road Tuesday, March 18, officially reducing the speed limit from 55 miles per hour to 35 mph.

The secondary road is in the Croatan National Forest. It's often used as a shortcut between Havelock and Maysville. The road connects U.S. 70 and U.S. 58.

Officials say that between 2009 and 2013 there have been 7 fatalities and 48 injuries.
