3 Division Ranks Division Engineer *Deputy Division Engineer Division Maintenance Engineer *District Engineer County Maintenance Engineer

4 NCDOT Authority  NCDOT State System Roads Interstate US Routes NC Routes Paved SR Routes Un-paved SR Routes  Non-System Roads County Maps: County Maps

5 NCDOT and Snow and Ice  It is the policy of the Department to perform snow and ice removal in the following order of priority: Routes included in the Bare Pavement System Remaining US and NC routes not in the Bare Pavement System Paved Secondary Routes not in the Bare Pavement System Unpaved Secondary Routes

6 NCDOT and Snow and Ice Before every season:  Snow and ice plan  Conduct a “dry run” of the snow and ice plan Review safety procedures Review plowing methods Check equipment Calibrate spreaders Review snow and ice plan Ride bare pavement routes  Top off salt supply

7 NCDOT and Snow and Ice Response Capabilities:  Anti-Icing: Use brine to prevent snow and ice from bonding to the pavement  De-Icing: Targets the removal of snow and ice from the pavement after precipitation has occurred  Abrasives: Increases traction in trouble areas

8 HAZARDOUS MATERIALS  Roadway Spill Response Petroleum and engine fluid spills State maintained roads/rights of way SAFETY!  Small Spills: <200gal of fuel oil or other engine fluid OR <30gal of gas Direct contact (sand/absorbant, shoveling)  Large Spills: >200gal of fuel oil or other engine fluid OR >30gal of gas OR any quantity of other hazardous cargoes or unknown materials Containment measures only (excavations, berms) Primary role: maintain traffic flow and restore the roadway and rights of way after the event.

9 NCDOT and Severe Weather Preparations:  Review emergency plans  Secure equipment and facilities  Stage equipment  Top off fuel tanks  Check material and supply inventory  Let employees make personal provisions  Make preparation for evacuation

10 NCDOT and Severe Weather Response During Event:  SAFETY!  No night work  Monitor and report weather conditions

11 NCDOT and Severe Weather Post-Event Operations:  Implement emergency response plan  Begin phase 1 of debris policy Cut and shove to provide emergency access  Put together contracts for debris removal  Unaffected Divisions begin coordinating to move equipment and personnel to affected Divisions

12 NCDOT Debris Policy Phase 1 Provide clear access routes for:  Movement of emergency vehicles  Law enforcement  Resumption of critical services  Damage assessment of critical public facilities and utilities Phase 2 Debris Removal and Disposal Responsibilities:  Curbside separation  Vegetative debris  Sand  Right-of-Way Pickup  No C&D Debris

13 NCDOT Memorandum of Agreement  Allows NCDOT the ability to release authority to local governments for the purpose of vegetative debris removal from FEMA designated routes. In certain instances, under the MAP-21 legislation, NCDOT may also release FHWA designated routes.  Can be executed prior to storm season  Can only be activated after federal declaration  Local governments can respond to constituents requests for debris removal and be eligible for FEMA reimbursement  Allows NCDOT the ability to concentrate on broad debris issues and infrastructure  Joint participation assists in the recovery efforts resulting in quicker return to pre-event conditions

14 Incident Management Assistance Patrols (IMAP)  Located in most major urban areas  Trained NCDOT personnel assist to: Help stranded motorists Clear the roadways Provide temporary traffic control  Capability to relocate to other routes throughout the state.

15 Traveler Information Management System (TIMS)

16 NC 511  A free call that provides information on: Traffic incidents and major closures on Interstates, US routes and state routes in NC Weather conditions statewide Road construction and planned road construction on Interstates, US routes and state routes in NC Amber alerts Links to neighboring states’ 511 phone systems
