Although Asheville and other areas of Western North Carolina weren’t hit nearly as hard as portions of South Carolina, the recent storms have left their mark on local roadways. Officials in Buncombe County have been working tirelessly to clean up and reopen impacted stretches of the Blue Ridge Parkway. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, rangers and roadway crews have been cleaning branches, leaves, fallen rocks, trees and other debris from the roadway to improve safety for motorists in North Carolina. Drivers are encouraged to make safe decisions behind the wheel, before, during and after inclement weather.

Safe Driving After Poor Weather

Although we typically think of rain, wind, sleet, snow and other weather conditions as being a primary factor in whether or not roadway conditions will be safe, it’s important to remember that even after a storm is over, road conditions can still be just as dangerous. This recent storm was a prime example for drivers in and around Asheville. The Blue Ridge Parkway and other local roadways had debris littered all over. Thankfully, cleaning crews and officials cleared the roadways as quickly as possible.
