RALEIGH -The North Carolina Department of Transportation on Monday continued to monitor road conditions across the state, especially in coastal counties, after the weekend's heavy rain.
Stretches of four primary roads -N.C. 210 at North Topsail; N.C. 133, near N.C. 87, in Brunswick County; N.C 12 at Ocracoke; and N.C. 12 in Kitty Hawk -remained closed Monday.
At the height of the weekend storm, approximately 60 state-maintained secondary roads were closed. About 45 remained closed Monday afternoon. (Find the latest road closures near you with NCDOT's interactive, live travel map.)
Flooding late Sunday and early Monday forced several roads in the southeastern part of the state to close, including N.C. 12 from Old Cedar Island Road to Lola Road on Cedar Island in Carteret County; N.C. 179 in Brunswick County, N.C. 50 in Duplin; U.S. 117 (College Road near Castle Hayne) in New Hanover County; and N.C. 210 in Onslow County.
NCDOT crews remain on standby to restrict access to flooded roads, as needed.
Drivers traveling to South Carolina should be mindful that their trips could be affected. A stretch of I-95 is closed in South Carolina between Florence and I-26, forcing the Department of Transportation there to set up detours..
Flooding also forced Amtrak, CSXT and Norfolk Southern on Sunday to cancel long-distance passenger service, resulting in some cancellations in North Carolina.Amtrak trains were expected to be out of service on Monday:
- Trains 97 and 98 will have no passenger service in Rocky Mount or Fayetteville.
- Trains 91 and 92, the Silver Stars, are canceled, meaning no service at Rocky Mount, Raleigh, Cary, Southern Pines and Hamlet.
- Trains 89 and 90, the Palmettos, have been terminated in Richmond.
- Trains 73, 74, 75 & 76, the Piedmonts, and Trains 79 and 80, the Carolinians, are operating on their normal schedules in North Carolina.
