"We are still having trouble with citizens attempting to drive around barricades that the North Carolina Department of Transportation has placed on roads that are closed," Lincoln County officials told WBTV.
"These roads are closed due to the inherent danger that they pose to the public. We are strongly urging the public to not go around any barricaded roadways under any circumstances. By doing so, they are putting their own lives in jeopardy as well as anyone else that may be with them."
