Travel Advisory Issued For Charlotte Region Due To Flooded Roads


The North Carolina Department of Transportation issued a statewide travel advisory as floodwaters from Hurricane Florence continue to rise.

The advisory reads;

“Due to flooding in southern and eastern NC and potential landslides in the west, NCDOT advises that motorists not travel through NC. Several sections of I-95 and I-40 are flooded.

Travel should be completely avoided in areas south of US 64 and east of I-73/I-74. As the situation is rapidly changing NCDOT is doing our best to report these closures but recognizes that we are not yet aware of all closures, therefore we advise not to travel in these areas.”

Union County saw some of the worst flooding in our region, with many roads becoming completely impassable;

Emergency crews were called to several areas to rescue stranded residents;

Here in Charlotte, the only major roads to completely flood were Marvin Rd. and Weddington Rd. in South Charlotte;

and Addison Drive off Randolph Rd. in East Charlotte;

Charlotte also saw dozens of parks, parking lots, and greenways overflow with water over the past few days;
