Delaware State Of Emergency Lifted

Posted: Updated:

DELAWARE - The State of Emergency has been lifted for Delaware. Governor Jack Markell announced Wednesday morning that he has lifted the level one Driving Warning effective as of 10:00 AM, Wednesday morning.

Officials warn that some roads still have ice and snow on them, and ask drivers to still use caution while out and about. DelDOT crews are continuing to work on plowing and salting roads, but with the low temperatures, salt has limited effectiveness.

Governor Markell said ""If you have to go out on the roads today, please drive slowly and carefully. Hundreds of DelDOT employees have worked through the night and morning to improve road conditions, but snowy and icy spots still exist and drivers should exercise caution."

Temperatures are expected to remain below freezing for several days.
