Area DOT crews keeping eye on potential wintry weather

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - Local DOT crews say they’re keeping an eye on potential wintry weather.

Crews won’t brine area roadways since a light rain is expected before temperatures drop below freezing overnight.

However, N.C. Department of Transportation crews in eastern North Carolina, including Beaufort, Carteret, Craven, Greene, Lenoir, Pamlico and Pitt counties will remain on standby monitoring the weather just in case slippery spots turn up by Wednesday morning.

 The agency says maintenance crews in NCDOT Division 2 have been doing snow and ice prep dry runs, which include fitting plows, calibrating spreaders, learning the brining and plowing routes and making sure personnel and equipment are ready.

Storm Team 9 doesn’t expect any significant amount of precipitation, but drivers should still slow down and drive carefully.
