The City of New Bern is cautioning drivers to be aware that the North Carolina Department of Transportation has changed the speed limit along state route SR-1309, otherwise known as South Glenburnie Road.

The part of the road impacted is between Highway 70/17 & MLK Boulevard where the speed limit is now 35 mph. It was previously 45 mph along that stretch.

The New Bern Police Department has posted digital signs at both ends of the affected area to alert drivers.

Annette is originally a Midwest gal, born and raised in Michigan, but with career stops in many surrounding states, the Pacific Northwest, and various parts of the southeast. She has been involved in the media industry in eastern North Carolina for more than three years. An award-winning journalist and mother of four, Annette moved to ENC to be closer to family – in particular, her two young grandchildren. It’s possible that a -27 day with a -68 windchill in Minnesota may have also played a role in that decision. In her spare time, Annette does a lot of toddler and baby cuddling, reading, designing costumes for children’s theater and producing the coolest Halloween costumes anyone has ever seen. She has also worked as a diversity and inclusion facilitator serving school districts and large corporations. It’s the people that make this beautiful area special, and she wants to share those stories that touch the hearts of others.
