UNDATED- Snow plows were clearing roads across lower Delaware and the Eastern Shore of Maryland on Wednesday as a result of winter weather the region experienced.

Delaware transportation said the snow has been heaviest in Sussex County, where many plows began pushing snow at around 6 a.m. The primary roads are essentially clear, but there is still hard-packed snow on the shoulders and turn lanes. DelDOT will begin plowing or treating with salt the secondary or minor roads, once the main roads are safe, officials said. 

In Kent County, crews are pushing snow on the primary roads mainly in the southern parts of the county. In New Castle County, the roads remain clear, and crews are monitoring conditions for any rapid changes.

In Maryland, officials with the State Highway Administration said crews would not put down brine on the roads because the rain would wash it away. There were some accidents in Wicomico and Worcester counties where vehicles slid off the road. But there were no reported injuries. The SHA said the roads are slick but if motorists spot a salt truck on the road to keep a distance from the truck.
