DOVER, Delaware — Delaware transportation officials say very low temperatures and packed snow and ice are making it tough to plow roads in the state.

Official say all crews are still on the job Friday and their goal remains clearing primary and some secondary roads, a day after a snowstorm dumped a half a foot of snow in some areas.

State of Delaware offices are opening at 10 a.m. and City of Wilmington offices are opening two hours late.

Officials are warning motorists to leave plenty of time and drive slowly and cautiously. They say many roads are still snow covered or snow packed, keeping crews on the job statewide. Once temperatures rise, officials expect to be able to shift their focus to secondary and back roads.
