Department of Transportation | Date Posted: Friday, October 26, 2012



The people and equipment of DelDOT are getting ready

Dover – As Hurricane Sandy moves along the East Coast of the United States, senior officials from the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) are monitoring the reports from the National Weather Service, and the Delaware Emergency Management Agency. They have instructed DelDOT crews to begin preparations in case the storm impacts our state.

Across Delaware, crews are making sure equipment is available and ready for service, and most importantly, making sure that personnel are ready for the possibility of working for an extended period.

DelDOT urges people who live in areas prone to flooding to take precautions too. Thought should be given to possible evacuation, and assembling necessary supplies. Staying off the roads during the storm will help DelDOT crews do their jobs.

“At DelDOT, we always plan for the worst, and hope for the best,” said DelDOT Secretary Shailen Bhatt. “Today, we’re asking residents to please start making plans as well.”
