Davidson Police Department to Enforce New Speed Limits on Davidson-Concord Road
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) reduced the speed limits along Davidson-Concord Road on Thursday, June 16. The speed limit on Concord Road heading east toward the East Rocky River Road roundabout is now 35 mph. The speed limit along Davidson-Concord Road from the roundabout to just past Historic Beaver is now 35 mph. The speed limit from Historic Beaver Dam to the intersection of Davidson-Concord Road and NC 73 is now 45 mph. The limits were originally posted at 10 mph higher in each section.
The Davidson Police Department will enforce these new speed limits. They have posted two electronic speed detection devices along Davidson-Concord Road to alert drivers to the speed limit reduction.

“We are pleased that NCDOT made these speed limit reductions,” said Davidson Police Chief Jeanne Miller. “We encourage motorists to drive safely, bicyclists to bike safely, and pedestrians to walk safely around town.”
