Department of Transportation crews in Pitt County say they have driven many of the major roads Friday morning, and they found no major issues.
Crews have been on standby since 4 a.m. to treat roads if any slick spots appeared. So far, the roads have been clear, including most bridges and overpasses. Bridges and overpasses freeze faster than regular roadways. However, with temperatures across most of Eastern Carolina staying above freezing, black ice will not be a major problem.
There is colder air coming in to the northern part of Eastern Carolina, which is the one area where slick roads might pose a problem Friday morning.
