The Department of Transportation says it's getting ready for Hurricane Bill.
While the hurricane is not expected to reach the coast, forecasts show it could cause high tides and over wash on roads like Highway 12.
The D.O.T. says it has put coastal crews on standby and has moved heavy equipment to flood-prone areas in Dare County. If necessary crews can use front-end loaders, motor graders and bulldozers to push sand off the roads and help drain standing water.
