Cary, NC – Cary’s A-Team is hard at work clearing major thoroughfares and primary streets in anticipation of Friday morning’s traffic. At this time, all bridges, hills and traditionally slick spots have been treated; crews are shifting focus overnight to treat major intersections and will monitor main thoroughfares and primary streets within subdivisions. In order to allow for safe and effective treating, citizens should avoid any unnecessary travel and park off street. If you must travel, view real-time conditions on the Town of Cary’s Live Traffic Feed prior to venturing out. 

Since flakes started falling this afternoon, there have been seven crashes, none of which with life-threatening injuries. Cary’s A-Team is operating with about 3200 tons of salt and 55 plows. The A-Team plows at 1-inch of accumulated snow; the Town of Cary does not plow private parking lots and streets.
