NCDOT Crews Working to Clear Snow, Ice from Roads Statewide

From the mountains to the coast, N.C. Department of Transportation crews across the state are working hard today to clear roads and bridges after a winter storm covered them in snow and ice Monday night. Every county is impacted at this time. To check conditions where you live, visit our travel webpage.Because travel conditions are treacherous, NCDOT urges motorists to stay off the roads today if possible. This will not only help keep drivers safe, but it will also make it easier for our maintenance crews to plow snow off the roads and put down sand or salt.Crews are working around-the-clock to respond to the winter storm. There are 2,706 employees operating 1,474 trucks and 217 graders to combat the effects of the storm. To date, they have put down nearly 31,000 tons of salt and roughly 6,700 tons of sand/salt mix on roads and bridges.>
