Q. Who can I contact about a change of speed limit on a stretch of road that has been the same for 45 years? Hendersonville rd is 45 and now has tons of driveways and stop lights and fools wanting to run ye off the road...

A. The speed limit on Transou Road is under review by Winston-Salem's transportation department.

The road is part of an area that was annexed into Winston-Salem city limits last year. In the past, the road didn't have a posted speed limit. Under state law, that meant that Transou Road, being outside any city limit, had a speed limit of 55 mph. Once the area was annexed, the rules changed to 35 mph. Within city limits, when no sign is posted, 35 mph is the default speed limit.

"What we have done is posted 35 mph (signs) until we can conduct studies to further assess what the appropriate limit should be," said Stan Polanis, the director of transportation for the city. "It is our plan to do the studies in late summer when school is back in session. I think it would be better to wait until then so we can get a better idea how the road is regularly used. Depending on those findings, we could then adjust the limit to the appropriate speed."

Polanis said that residents who live along the road will get information from the department about any changes to the speed limit.
