DOT crews prepping for potential winter weather

LENOIR COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) – Department of Transportation crews are prepping some Eastern Carolina roads for the potential winter weather that could be headed our way this weekend.

Crews were seen brining Highway 11 in Lenoir County, US-13 and Highway 11 S. in Pitt County around 8:30 a.m.

The DOT says crews will continue to brine the roads Friday and switch out the equipment for plows ahead of Sunday’s weather event.

WITN meteorologists say a wintry mix of snow and rain is in the forecast for Sunday morning, but we are not expecting any accumulation in Eastern Carolina. The mix is expected to turn to all rain by midday.
