Rural Roads Focus of DOT
Thursday NCDOT crews are focusing on clearing secondary roads and secondary connectors, and beginning to reach gravel roads for the first time.
DOT says Buncombe County interstates are clear and primaries are cleared with possible icy patches. Secondary roads have been salted and sanded, but now residents must wait for the sun and temperatures to kick in.
Some residents are still waiting for this week's garbage pickup while others are venturing out on still snow-covered private roads for the first time since Tuesday's big snowfall.
