More than 370 workers and 290 plow trucks went out on de-icing duty Sunday in the department's 7th and 9th highway divisions, which include Greensboro and Winston-Salem.

NCDOT says some interstates and primary routes in Alamance, Caswell, Guilford, Orange, and Rockingham counties are still covered with snow and ice, only some are partially cleared.

Four and two-lane primary routes in Davidson, Davie, Forsyth, Rowan, and Stokes counties are still mostly covered in ice and snow. Secondary roads across the division remain 90 percent untouched.

Crews in both divisions that cover the Triad are also working to cut and remove downed trees from roadways.
