The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT)  is monitoring this weekend’s weather and preparing for snow. According to the National Weather Service forecast, an inch to three inches of snow may occur Friday evening through Saturday evening. Motorists should be prepared for snow covered roadways and use caution while driving.

In advance of the snowfall predicted tonight and tomorrow, DelDOT crews are pre-treating major roadways with brine in all three counties.

During winter storms, motorists should maintain a safe distance from DelDOT vehicles and snow plows. Stay alert for snow plows that may be slowing down, stopping, turning or pulling over. Snow plows may travel over centerlines or along road shoulders to improve road conditions.

DelDOT will continue to provide updates on road conditions and motorists can tune to WTMC 1380 AM for real-time reports on road conditions.

Motorists may contact the Transportation Management Center (TMC) 24/7 to report any travel or traffic related issues at the following numbers: Dial #77 from any cell phone in Delaware; (302) 659-4600; or 1-800-324-8379.
