Update: City Government Snow Preparations

Post Date:02/20/2020 12:03 PM

(Fayetteville, N.C.) – Due to weather conditions that are expected to worsen today and into this evening, City of Fayetteville leaders are warning that driving conditions could be dangerous tonight and tomorrow morning. According to an update from the National Weather Service, we could see a wintry mix transition in our area as early as 5pm, followed by snowfall overnight of up to two inches in Fayetteville, with a worst case scenario of five inches across the region.

For Drivers:

  • Unfortunately, roads cannot brined or salted in advance of the storm due to today’s rain; anything put on the roads now would just wash away before the snow arrives.
  • We have 6 sand trucks and 5 plows on standby to deal with any snow accumulation. Our Streets Division has 12 employees on duty tonight over the evening hours tonight to deal with any evening precipitation and 18 employees on duty tomorrow morning to provide streets coverage until late tomorrow afternoon.

 For Air Travelers:

  • The Fayetteville Regional Airport will remain open but travelers are encouraged to check directly with airlines on their flight status over the next 24 hours as delays and cancellations may occur.
