ASHEBORO — The North Carolina Zoo will remain closed Monday as crews continue to clean up from last week’s snowstorm.

The zoo says walkways and service roads in the 2,200-acre park remain icy even after this weekend’s thaw around Asheboro. The area saw about 6 inches of snow and sleet from the storm Wednesday.

Officials expect the zoo to reopen Tuesday, six days after it closed. The zoo is normally open every day except for Christmas.
