REAL-TIME UPDATES FOR CHARLOTTE
TRAVEL EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS ACROSS NORTH CAROLINA
Travel is hazardous in North Carolina on all roads south of US 64 and east of I-73/74. Motorists should not drive in these areas.
GPS systems are routing users into areas NCDOT is not recommending for travel.
To avoid North Carolina if traveling south on I-95 drivers should use I-64 West in Virginia to I-81 south, to I-75 south in Tennessee to I-16 East in Georgia back to I-95.
This is an extremely long detour, but it is the detour that offers the lowest risk of flooding at this time.
Through traffic from I-95 in Georgia is advised to use I-16 West to I-75 North to I-81 North to I-64 East back to I-95 in Virginia.
If you are already in North Carolina on I-95 you may use US 64 west to I-540 west to I-40 west to I-85 south into South Carolina.
Follow South Carolina DOT instructions to return to I-95.
Conditions are constantly changing please check back before you travel.
I-40 CLOSED BETWEEN WILMINGTON AND I-95
Motorists are advised not to travel on I-40 between I-95 and Wilmington due to the uncertainty of flooding conditions.
As the situation is rapidly changing NCDOT is doing its best to report these closures.
