There are reports of some slick conditions on some roadways Wednesday morning after Tuesday's storm.

Temperatures are above freezing in most of the state, but parts of central and western Mass. and many secondary roads have ice built-up from Tuesday.

Luisa Paiewonsky, administrator of the Mass. DOT highway division, joined Morning Edition Wednesday to give an update on road conditions.

According to Paiewonsky, highway conditions are much better than they were on Tuesday, when a snow and ice storm caused several spin outs and snarling traffic.

"We had crews working all night to prepare for this morning's commute," Paiewonsky said. "Mostly they were spreading material and in central Massachusetts they were pushing some lingering slush off the roads."

As of 7:05 a.m. the Green line D trains are running with 10-15 minute delays, and the Route 28 and 45 buses are also running with 10-15 minute delays.

There are just a handful of delays and cancellations at Boston Logan International Airport, and over 50 delayed school openings.
