​​The Charlotte Department of Transportation's Street Maintenance Division (SMD) crews are on stand-by today. The SMD may be treating some Charlotte streets with salt or salt brine in anticipation of a winter weather event arriving Friday night and possibly Saturday morning.  Evaluation of conditions will be ongoing and adjusted as warranted.

Under a minimal storm watch condition, CDOT targets salt brining on;

  • Bridges & culverts on City streets and selected NCDOT streets,​
  • Hospital entrances, and
  • Emergencies called in.

Citizens should report icy road conditions by calling CharMeck 311.  Also, reports of routine icing on City streets can be called in to 704-336-3200.  Actual emergencies and accidents should be called in to 911.

Here is CDOT's Emergency Plan for Snow and Ice.
