Roads remained closed throughout central and southern Wayne County after nearly six inches of rain fell last week.
The NC Department of Transportation (NCDOT) reports closures at the following locations: Lassiter Road, Ferry Bridge Road, Stevens Mill Road, Bryan Boulevard, North John Street, Westbrook Road, Pecan Road, Casey Mill Road, Arrington Bridge Road, Slick Rock Road, River Road, Rockford Church Road and Spring Street
Drivers are encouraged to turn around and not drown when encountering road ways completely covered in water. This puts your life at risk and also the lives of first responders who have to rescue you if your vehicle becomes disable.
The Neuse River officially crested during the weekend and has not caused any traffic delays.
Emergency management staff continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as information changes. Residents are encouraged to register for CodeRed at www.waynegov.com to receive weather alerts for your neighborhood.
