See, Click, Fix: Tyvola Speed Limit Signs

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -  There's an old saying, "what you don't know, won't hurt you."

But what you don't know when you travel along Tyvola Road in south Charlotte could lead to problems.

When you get onto west Tyvola Road off I-77 you may not notice anything.

And that's the problem according to a See, Click, Fix viewer.

Do you know what the speed limit is along Tyvola Road?

That may be hard to answer if it depends on seeing a speed limit sign.  And that's what a viewer wrote about: the lack of speed limit signs along Tyvola.

So I contacted the Charlotte Department of Transportation and true to form, engineers got back in touch with me right away and said they'd look into the issue.

Here's what I've learned.  The speed limit along Tyvola Road is 45.  And there are approximately eleven speed limit signs between I-77 and the Billy Graham Parkway.

However, CDOT tells me: "We found a couple of long stretches without speed limit signs. The CDOT is agreeable to adding signs along the roadway...I think it falls under "other locations where it is necessary…"

The engineer referring to a requirement that speed limit signs "shall be installed beyond major intersections and at other locations where it is necessary to remind road users of the speed limit that is applicable."

In other words, the problem is being See, Click, FIXED.  CDOT is going to add more speed limit signs along Tyvola to make sure that drivers know exactly what the speed limit is.

It usually takes a couple of weeks to get the work scheduled.  I'll keep you posted when the new signs go up.
