DOVER, Del. (AP) - The Delaware Department of Transportation is urging motorists to use caution after winter weather moved through the state.

Transportation officials said in a statement Friday morning that pre-treating the roads with salt appears to have been effective in preventing any snow accumulation. Officials say the state’s roads and bridges are mainly wet but there may be some icy spots.

Officials say motorists traveling Friday should use caution because temperatures are hovering around freezing and a wet road can quickly become ice covered if conditions change.

Officials say more than 300 Delaware Department of Transportation crews have been working to apply salt to roads and bridges and will continue to work Friday.
