DELDOT pre-treating NCCo roads, anticipating forecast snow

DELDOT crews are pre-treating major roads and bridges in New Castle County in anticipation of the 1 to 2 inches of snow forecast for Saturday.

The agency has announced it's putting brine, a mixture of salt and water, on roads and bridges now, and will continue that effort starting at 5 Saturday morning.

The brine is meant to keep ice from forming on road surfaces.

DELDOT expects about 210 vehicles to be on the roads at the peak of its effort in New Castle County Saturday.

Kent and Sussex County crews will be activated as needed.
