Drivers Urged to Avoid Icy Roads

Posted: Updated:
SALISBURY, Md.- The snow may be behind us, but icy road conditions are still a problem on some parts of Delmarva.

Reginald Townsend of Parksley, Va., recently moved to Salisbury. WBOC caught up with him on his way in from work. Townsend said he is not worried about driving on roads covered in ice.

“I've seen worse in Virginia, but just take your time to get where you need to go," Townsend said.

Thursday's winter storm dumped several inches of snow on parts of Delmarva. Freezing temperatures followed the storm, causing slick, slippery road conditions.

Townsend said he uses a lot of patience on the road.

Jaden Church, 14, woke up early Friday to shovel his godmother's walkway. Church is an eighth-grader at Bennett Middle School in Salisbury.

"I ain't want to let her fall or nothing, so I came to shovel the snow,” said Church, who was excited about helping her out. He said he loves to shovel.

Roads conditions are slowly improving on main roads like Route 13 in Salisbury. Crews with the Maryland State Highway Administration spent all morning treating the roads with salt. Officials, however, urge drivers to stay away from areas covered in ice until it melts. The salt is not as effective when temperatures are below freezing and that was the case last night.
