NCDOT Crews Clear A Path Through The Snow (PHOTOS)

Local NCDOT crews are working tirelessly to clear the snow and ice from Wayne County’s roads.

Luther Thompson is Wayne County’s Maintenance Engineer for the North Carolina Department of Transportation.

He says the NCDOT started brining the primary roads and bare pavement routes on Wednesday.

Thompson says NCDOT crews switch to the second phase once the flakes begin to fly.

Trucks will be staged throughout the county to begin the snow removal process starting with the four-lane highways and then working their way down to secondary roads.

Thompson says the NCDOT workers will have been out all through the night.

If it gets cold enough overnight, black ice may be a problem across Wayne County’s roads by daybreak.

Thompson urges motorists to leave plenty of distance between themselves and any snow removal equipment they encounter along the road Friday.

Also, if you come to a stop behind an NCDOT truck at a stoplight, leave some room as the equipment may begin spraying salt once it begins moving again.

It is advised citizens stay of the roads if possible until conditions improve.
