DOVER, Del.- A spring snowstorm is moving across Delmarva with between 2 and 4 inches of accumulation possible Monday in some parts of the peninsula, particularly the northern and central areas.
The Delaware Department of Transportation said that statewide, more than 400 work crews are currently on the roads, applying salt, plowing and monitoring the road conditions. Many crews started at 3 a.m. Monday. Trouble areas include overpasses and bridges, which tend to freeze first.
By 9 a.m. Monday, most roads were cleared, but patches of snow and slush covered some areas. Temperatures are expected to hover between 30 to 39 degrees so most precipitation will come in the form of large, damp snow.
The Maryland State Highway Administration has deployed its trucks and personnel statewide to help make driving safer. As traffic volumes increase, SHA reminds motorists to drive at the appropriate speed for the weather conditions. Crews will continue to salt and plow throughout the morning.
SHA reminds everyone on the road to see and be seen by clearing your entire vehicle of snow; watching for pedestrians navigating slick conditions on foot; using windshield wipers; and driving with caution.
Motorists are asked to prepare by following winter driving tips and checking conditions along their route before going out by logging onto www.md511.org.
