Del. Governor Lifts State of Emergency

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del.-  Delaware Gov. Jack Markell announced he has lifted the state of emergency "Level One Driving Warning" for Delaware, effective at 2 PM. 

Markell had already lifted the state of emergency around noon for Kent County. Officials said road conditions in Kent County have improved since Thursday morning, but some roads still have snow and ice on them.

Officials said the Delaware Department of Transportation continues to work on plowing and salting roads and drivers should exercise caution, particularly on back roads or areas that become icy.

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

According to state law, a "Level 1 Driving Warning" means that any person operating a motor vehicle while the warning is in effect shall exercise extra caution in the operation of their motor vehicle.
