GoRaleigh Adverse Weather Guide

The City of Raleigh has a snow removal plan for its road system. It is designed for 2-4 inch snow coverage with rising temperatures as well as for severe snow storms. Salt is spread when accumulations are under two inches. Snow plowing begins when snow exceeds two inches.

City roads are cleared in the following order:

1) Bridges
2) Major thoroughfares
3) All bus routes
4) Major residential areas
5) Other residential/hazardous areas
6) Other areas not covered in previous priorities

The City of Raleigh Department of Transportation also has a plan for its bus service during snow and sleet conditions. This plan is based on the City’s policy of continuing bus service at the highest level possible as long as reasonably safe.
The plan consists of an abbreviated route system that becomes effective when conditions prevent running an entire bus route.

Service may also be temporarily discontinued where the accumulation of unplowed snow on major thoroughfares prevents buses from maneuvering. Transit operations are essential and any suspended service will be as brief as possible.
The City of Raleigh Department of Transportation provides the latest information to the public to keep you informed of transit service changes. The four levels of GoRaleigh bus service are:

Level 1: Full bus service provided under normal conditions.

Level 2: Normal service with delays or early shutdown and possible detours.

Level 3: Saturday level service, potential detours.

Level 4: Sunday level service, potential detours.

All levels of service could experience detours and delays or changes in scheduled service. Please call 919-485-RIDE (7433) for immediate information or stay tuned to our social media pages for the latest updates.

NCDOT 40/440 Rebuild Project "Fortify" Information

FORTIFY is not just about rebuilding a road, it’s also about fortifying a community. Enhancing the mobility of our region creates greater opportunities for our citizens – access to jobs, healthcare, education, and the people and places that make our community great. Strong partnerships and community collaboration will help reduce the impact to those who live in, work in, and pass through the capital city during construction.

Our project to fortify two of the Triangle’s busiest roads begins this week, and we want to make sure you know what to expect while construction is under way on this major roadway rebuild project and understand how to get the latest information quickly and easily.

What is Fortify?

The Fortify project involves removing and replacing an 11.5-mile stretch of I-40 and I-440 to address immediate safety concerns. The 30-year-old pavement is cracking and crumbling because of a chemical reaction, called ASR, happening in the road. The reaction is triggered by water mixing with a substance that was used in paving several decades ago.

In addition to rebuilding the road, crews will extend two miles of auxiliary lanes to help manage additional traffic. They will also rehabilitate 14 bridges within the project zone to extend their life by many years.

The entire project is scheduled to wrap up by Spring 2017.

Impact to Drivers

More than 100,000 cars travel on the weakened sections of 40 and 440 every day, so the $130 million project is going to impact drivers significantly.

NCDOT is taking steps to minimize that impact, including making a $12 million investment in additional transit, and working with the contractor to keep three lanes open in both directions on I-40 during the majority of construction.

Tools to Keep You Informed

www.fortifync.com The Fortify website, which was built by NCDOT’s Web Services Team, is your one-stop shop for all project-related information. It features maps, details on where to catch alternate transit options and links to live traffic cameras through a partnership with WRAL News. There is even a top 40 playlist of jams to help you through the traffic.

Facebook – Fortify Facebook page with updates on traffic flow and projected progress, photos and videos, and engagement in conversation with followers.

Twitter – The project Twitter feed, @FortifyNC, will offer real-time travel information any time of day or night. They're in the process of linking the Twitter feed with TIMS, so whenever an incident occurs within the project area, you’ll get an instant alert on your computer or mobile device. It’s a great way to “know before you go!”

NCDOT is committed to keeping drivers informed every step of the way throughout this massive project to fortify not just a road but the community, as well. For more information on Fortify, visit www.fortifync.com.
