The N.C. Department of Transportation will be treating interstates on Monday in Mecklenburg and Cabarrus counties ahead of a weather system ushering frigid air, creating the potential for ice to develop overnight.
Temperatures are predicted to fall to single digits, freezing what water may be on area roadways.
NCDOT will have 15 trucks canvassing I-77, I-85, I-485, I-277, bridges and overpasses with a brine mixture.
Warmer temperatures combined with traffic on the roads should help dry the pavement, minimizing the chances of ice forming.
Should issues arise overnight, DOT officials say a salt truck and brine truck will be on standby to respond.
Crews are expected to be done by 4 p.m.
