Snow Gone by Midday in Del., Concerns of Black Ice Remain


DOVER, Del. (WBOC) - The snow and sleet has moved out of Delaware. The sun came out late in the day Tuesday. It melted a lot of what was on the grass and the asphalt.

But some lingering problems may be left behind.

Drivers should not be fooled by the wet roads. As the temps drop, there will be a new issue on Delaware roads.

DelDOT Sect. Shailen Bhatt says his crews were out around the state starting in the early morning hours.

"Things have gone about as well as we could have expected. We got a good forecast. We reacted based on that."

But the sleet and snow of day is giving way to the freezing of night.

"Our concern right now is that the roads are wet," he said. "We don't want that to freeze. Our focus is on our primary roadway network and bridges."

DelDOT is at full staff in all three counties. In Kent and New Castle, crews were still salting and plowing in the afternoon. In Sussex they were monitoring and just treating roads as needed.

DelDOT is urging drivers to be careful of black ice Tuesday evening.
