CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The snow has not let up in Charlotte, and neither have the emergency crews.
Police and firefighters responded to hundreds of wrecks over the last few days, and they continue to urge drivers to use caution.
City, county and state government agencies are working to improve road conditions. CDOT says its equipped with plenty of salt, and crews will work in 12 hour shifts. Contractors are handling extra work.
Top priority routes are in the process of being treated but crews are expected to move to residential streets soon. Black ice is still a hazard.
Public transportation is also affected. CATS discontinued all bus and special transportation services Thursday. Service resumes Friday morning. The light rail ran as normal the last few days but delays are possible.
About 1,000 passengers are expected to remain in the airport overnight after hundreds of flights were cancelled. Fliers are urged to check their flight statuses before heading home.
Mecklenburg County offices open at 10 a.m. Friday. Regular court sessions are cancelled.
Trash services are cancelled for the remainder of the week. Anyone with questions about this, or other non-emergency issues can call 311.
