Why is there not a school zone speed limit reduction/caution on Market Street by New Hanover High School?

New Hanover County Schools officials said the matter is an issue for the N.C. Department of Transportation and the city of Wilmington.

“A written request from the principal is required for us to investigate a school zone speed limit.  The letter would need to be sent to the Division Traffic Engineer and include necessary information for the speed limit to be studied,” said Tammy Stewart, DOT spokeswoman.

“We do not have a request from New Hanover High School in our files,” Stewart said.


Why doesn’t the school zone sign on Sanders Road list hours for reduced speed?

Why isn’t there a “school zone” in front of the Town Creek Elementary School on U.S. 17 in Brunswick County?
