Major highways in Eastern Carolina are passable, but troopers are still advising motorists inland to stay off the highways unless it is absolutely necessary.
Bridges and overpasses in nearly all areas can be very dangerously. The reason they freeze so fast is because they cold air cools them on top and bottom, where the road only gets the cold air from top.
From Jacksonville to Washington, from New Bern to Williamston, from Greenville to Tarboro, bridges and overpasses have the potential to be treacherously slick.
Most highways are pretty clear Monday. However, turning lanes and secondary roads have a lot of snow packed down and ice. Residential streets also have snow and ice as do parking lots.
