(WBIR) After an increase in crashes, Clinton police dropped the speed limit on a section of Charles Seivers Boulevard.

The speed limit was 35 miles-per-hour from the Food City to the First Baptist Church. It then jumped to 45 miles-per-hour until the Veterans Bridge.

In the past year, Clinton police have worked almost 50 crashes in that area. To make the road safer, police have now dropped the 45-mile-per-hour section back down to 35 miles-per-hour.
