NCDOT Crews in Western Mountains Responding to Winter Weather

Shelby -De-icing operations are ongoing in Asheville and the surrounding counties, and N.C. Department of Transportation crews are prepared to continue those efforts as more winter weather moves into the region.

Snow and ice removal are ongoing in every county in NCDOT's Division 13, which includes Buncombe, Burke, Madison, McDowell, Mitchell, Rutherford and Yancey counties. Crews are monitoring weather conditions in the region and have the supplies and equipment needed to continue their de-icing operations as necessary.

With heavy snow in the forecast for parts of eastern North Carolina, Division 13 is sending some crews to that region today to assist with snow and ice removal.

Travelers are asked NOT to call 911 or the State Highway Patrol for road conditions. The lines must remain clear for emergency calls.
