DOT Pretreating Eastern Carolina Roads In Advance Of Possible Snow

State Highway crews here in Eastern Carolina will begin pre-treating major highways in anticipation of possible snow Christmas night.

Crews will spray salt brine on roads in Martin, Bertie, Hertford and Northampton counties, as well as major roads east of the Chowan River on Thursday.

The DOT says while maintenance workers in the area are not scheduled to work Christmas Eve--which is a state holiday--they will be on standby to respond to winter weather on Christmas Day.

Salt brine helps keep ice from bonding to the pavement and the DOT reminds drivers to leave plenty of distance between their vehicles and the yellow trucks spraying salt brine on the roads.
