Check Out Road Conditions

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.

For current road conditions, in North Carolina dial 511, or click here.

    I am very disappointed with the NCDOT. They did not handle clearing the roads in Pitt Co/Greenville with any common sence. I am from Maryland and what we got is nothing big to me. I do understand how it is a big deal to most of the folks around here. My point in this is that the NCDOT messed up several ways durning this. #1 salt should not have been placed on the roads until we started getting the snow. Not before 6 am on friday. All the salt was pushed off the roads by the time it was needed #2 I didnt see the first plow in g-ville until 11am. Why were they not up earlyer takeing care of the roads? Then they were plowing arlington before greenville blvd. what sence does that make? shouldnt they have plowed the major roads first?.... I do thank the folks that work on the plows for getting out and doing what needed to be done. But the guy on the plow is not one a fault, its his boss that is at fault. Go up north and take a class on snow and ice management!

    WELL TO EACH HIS OWN. IF YOU ARE SCARED TO DRIVE IN IT SO BE IT. BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY. I KNOW PEOPLE THINK WE HERE IN NC OVER REACT BUT THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN OFTEN. TELLING US TO DRIVE SLOW DOESN'T MATTER BECAUSE YOU HAVE SOME THAT ARE GOING TO BE FOOLS ANYWAY AND HURT SOMEONE ELSE. FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO WANT TO GET OUT IN IT GO FOR IT BUT DO NOT TALK JUNK ABOUT THE ONES OF US WHO DON'T WANT TO.

    NC 33 W from Belvoir to Edgecombe County line is in terrible shape. Once you get to the Edgecombe County line the roads start to get better.

    Hey Mall Boss, not sure what your roads look/looked like but they weren't that great where I live. I agree that malls shouldn't be open in bad weather and just because people feel that way does not mean we accept government checks. How narrow minded are you? I work just as you do and still disagree with your opinion. You don't have to be so hateful.

    Hwy 42 from Colerain to Ahoskie is a mess, sections of thick snow and ice still on the road. DOT plowed 45 several times Sat, and Sat night, why not 42?

    Yes, but those places that can get 20 inches of snow a day are well equiped with plows and clear all streets, including neighborhoods, regularly. I know, I used to live in one of those places.

    Why does everything have to close down because of a little snow and ice? Drive slower than you normally would and it'll be okay lol. Some states get 20 plus inches on a daily basis during the winter or some even year round. We get like 5 and we think the world is going to end. It was the funniest thing watching everyone running around like chickens with their heads cut off because of a little snow and ice. Anyways, the roads are bad in some spots in Martin County. Everyone drive slo and be safe!
