North Carolina DOT Crews Prepare for Winter Weather

N.C. Department of Transportation crews across the state are monitoring weather conditions across the state and are prepared to handle winter weather when necessary.

Crews began pre-treating interstates, N.C. and U.S. routes, as well as other heavily traveled roads with a salt-water mixture called brine in advance of winter weather forecast. Those efforts will continue as another storm is forecast to hit the state.

More than 1.1 million gallons of brine have been used as part of statewide anti-icing operations, as of Thursday morning.

The latest model data from Thursday morning suggests snow and sleet at the onset late Thursday night, changing to freezing rain Friday, then all rain across southern and southeastern portions of North Carolina on Friday afternoon.
