Some North Carolina bridges treated as light wintry mix forecast

RALEIGH, N.C. (WITN) - Crews were treating bridges and overpasses with brine in the Raleigh area as a precaution in case parts of the Carolinas have winter precipitation this week.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation was sending 12 trucks out to pre-treat elevated roadway structures in Wake County on Tuesday and could expand its efforts Wednesday if snow stays in the forecast.

The National Weather Service in Raleigh said light frozen precipitation including freezing rain was possible, especially for areas south and east of Fayetteville and Goldsboro through Wednesday morning.

Here is Eastern Carolina, DOT engineers say they have no plans to pre-treat roads on Tuesday, but they have equipment on standby if conditions worsen.

The DOT says they are also keeping a close watch on the next system on Friday.
