DelDOT Crews Make Winter Storm Preparations

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del .- With a winter storm just hours away, DelDOT officials say crews are mobilized and are making storm preparations. 

Crews in New Castle County reportedly spent Saturday pre-treating roads with brine; a salt and water mixture. Officials say in Sussex County, crews began pre-treating the roads today, and in Kent County, forecasts call for rain before the snow, so crews have not pretreated the roads since brine would likely wash away before snow falls.

In areas where snow starts falling, crews will reportedly first apply salt, then when the snow is deep enough, begin plowing.

As the snow associated with this event will likely be heaviest during the morning rush hour tomorrow, DelDOT is urging motorists to delay their morning commute if possible, and give themselves extra time to reach their destinations if they must drive.
