The DriveNC system is designed to give travelers information on the types of events that most often cause delays on our highway system. These include major crashes, construction or maintenance projects, and natural disasters that affect road conditions. Information on these types of events are entered by NCDOT employees with the goal of having the information be as timely, accurate and helpful as possible. DriveNC also includes AMBER Alerts and evacuation information in the top banner, and on a by-county basis in the Snow & Ice section at the bottom.
Please be aware that realistically not each and every event that occurs on the highway system will be shown in DriveNC. In the cases of some crashes, NCDOT may not be made aware of the crash as it may be handled by law enforcement personnel. As resources and partnerships with other agencies permit, more and different types of events will be added to the system. Also note that recurring congestion, such as during rush hours, is not feasible to include in the information on DriveNC since it is ever changing.
