The new speed limit will be enforced within a perimeter bounded by Ribaut Road to the west, US 21/Boundary Street to the north, Carteret Street to the east, and Bay Street/North Street to the south.

The new signs will be posted along the perimeter of this area, a traffic engineer with SCDOT said, and will apply to all residential streets. 

Residents, including from neighborhoods such as the Northwest Quadrant, the Old Commons, Uptown and the Bluff, had requested lower speed limits. State Rep. Shannon Erickson and City of Beaufort officials asked the Department of Transportation to conduct a speed study of these roads, which was done earlier this year. The SCDOT agreed that a lower speed limit of 25 mph was justified.
