The Charlotte Department of Transportation will be treating Charlotte bridges today with salt brine in anticipation of a winter weather event Thursday morning. Beginning at 1:00 a.m., City Street Maintenance crews will then be operating on a “Condition A.” This condition calls for 12 trucks, 24 crew members and five support staff. 

CDOT will target brining on bridge decks on City streets only unless conditions warrant other action. 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.
