While the Level 2 Driving Restriction will no longer be in place, DelDOT advises all motorists that there will still be snow covered secondary roads with significant drifting and subdivisions will likely not see plows until Saturday.

Road Conditions Update:
Icy conditions will remain throughout the weekend due the extreme cold, and motorists should also be alert for drifting snow on roadways statewide.

In Sussex County, DelDOT has brought additional plows from northern Delaware, and contractual plow operators are also assisting in the snow clearing effort.

DelDOT will continue to provide regular updates throughout the duration of the storm event.
