Preparing For Ice
Updated: Friday, February 22 2013, 07:07 AM EST
NCDOT crews are on standby Thursday night waiting to see what mother nature brings this way.
Crews spent the afternoon loading up salt trucks to spread if the roads get slick. With rain and freezing rain ahead, they can't pre-treat with salt-brine like they would for snow because it would all be washed away.
If you have to be out overnight or in the morning, keep in mind that bridges and overpasses usually freeze first.
