BETHLEHEM TWP., Pa. -

Pennsylvania officials are aware that we have some more winter left so they're re-stocking their dwindling road salt supplies.

At the orders of Governor Tom Corbett, a convoy of trucks traveled from a road salt supply barge in Delaware to make deliveries to the Lehigh Valley, Philadelphia and Harrisburg areas.

These are the regions in the state considered to have the most urgent need for fresh supplies.

The trucks headed for the Lehigh Valley were expected to make their deliveries Tuesday night at a PennDOT stockpile in Bethlehem Township.
