NCDOT Crews Make Preparations For Winter Storms

North Carolina Department of Transportation crews are prepared for winter storms in maintenance yards across the state. 

Trucks, plows and spreaders have been inspected by employees as part of the annual dry runs conducted in every county before winter weather hits.  

Just before winter weather is expected to arrive in an area, NCDOT will treat roads based on priority – interstates, four-lane highways and other primary routes first, followed by secondary roads.

This is Winter Weather Preparedness Week in North Carolina.

NCDOT workers prepare before a snowstorm hits Wayne County in 2020.
