Two Miles North of Williamston city limit/ Roanoke river Bri

Williamston, North CarolinaApr 11, 20101 Comments

As you leave Williamston on High way 17 North, 2 miles past the Roanoke River Bridge LOOK to your left and DO NOT exceed 55 MPH. The Highway is built for 70 MPH or better, banked curves and smooth, but Bertie County needs money and both the NCHP and the local sheriff are out there. They sit in an official turn out hidden by trees. I travel this road twice per week and have NEVER traveled this road when someone was not pulled. They also pull southbound traffic from this same location which would be Hwy 17 South two miles before the Williamston. All of 17 from Edenton south to Williamston is to be watched carefully. Also there is a low area 1/2 mile south of the Chowan River Bridge where NCHP sits often.

Can definitely attest to this particular stretch of Hwy 13/17 both North and South. Within the span of around five miles, the speed limit goes from 70 to 55 to 70 to 55, and then finally down to 50 in Edenton. The first phase of speed changes happens on a main highway stretch for no particular rhyme or reason, other than an obvious cash grab from unsuspecting drivers. NC Highway patrol hides out at every one of these points with the speed limit change.
