CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
It's the biggest winter storm Charlotte has seen in years and Monday night, city and state leaders told Channel 9 they're ready.Leaders say the city has 32 plow trucks on standby and 12 brine trucks will be working all night.It has 70,000 gallons of brine ready.The state used 25 vehicles to apply brine to interstates and it's making more brine now. Channel 9 asked if this brine will do anything to keep you safe."Absolutely. All of our trucks are outfitted with plows and as we see accumulation on the roadway surfaces we will be plowing that off," says Ken Martin with Charlotte Department of Transportation. With the forecast of much more snow this time around, we're told crews will be ready to use plows this week. They say ice is a bigger concern because it's harder to fight.
