DelDOT’s maintenance crews in Kent and Sussex Counties maintenance districts are brining the primary roads, and will continue to monitor weather conditions statewide as the winter storm approaches. New Castle County primary roads have already been pre-treated.
A winter storm advisory is now in effect until 5 p.m. tomorrow for central and northern Delaware with a winter storm warning for southern Delaware in effect for Thursday, January 4. At this time, motorists may anticipate snow accumulations of 2 to 8 inches with the higher amounts in southern Delaware. With the forecasted gusty winds, DelDOT anticipates drifting snow which will greatly impact visibility and road conditions and slow snow removal operations. Motorists should use caution when driving on bridges, ramps, and overpasses that may have ice and slippery conditions.
After the primary roads are passable, DelDOT’s crews will move to the secondary roads. DelDOT’s crews may also return to the primary roads even after operations have started on secondary roads due to the changing of weather conditions.
Please assist in our operations by being mindful of our snowplow operators and do not pass a snowplow. Motorists should maintain a safe speed and control of your vehicle.
