State of Delaware Offices Closed

(Wilmington) –  State of Delaware offices will be closed today, as we continue to recover from the winter storm that ended this morning. The level one driving warning will remain in effect at this time. We are continually monitoring the road conditions in order to lift the State of Emergency as soon as it is safe to do so.

Hundreds of employees with over 300 pieces of equipment have been working steadily to clear roadways enough for safe passage. Despite pre-treating road surfaces and overnight plowing and salting, the windy conditions and low temperatures have necessitated multiple treatments to keep primary arteries passable. With snow ending earlier this morning, crews have begun work on the secondary roads.

“If you do not need to be out on the roads this morning, please don’t drive,” said Governor Markell. “This gives DelDOT the space it needs to get its work done and will help keep you safe.”
