While the bulk of the East should escape wintry weather, travel could be tricky if you have to head west. Officials at RDU say they are prepping for snow, but recommend anyone with a flight call their airline before coming to the airport.
Just as the weather starts turning foul, construction crews will be calling it quits for the holidays. The NCDOT says construction projects for the more part will stop at 4 p.m. Friday, through January 4th. The one exception is U.S. 17 in Windsor in Bertie County, where the Cashie River bridge will still be just one lane.
There are several ways for citizens to find out about road conditions. Travelers can call 511, the state’s toll-free travel information line, or visit the NCDOT Traveler Information Web site at www.ncdot.gov/traffictravel.
NCDOT also offers travel information on Twitter, a free social-networking Web site. Citizens can get brief updates, or “tweets,” for 16 different routes or regions of the state by signing up at www.ncdot.gov/travel/twitter.
