North Lincolnshire Council's highways teams are continuing to monitor weather conditions and 1,328 tonnes of salt have been spread on the region's roads by gritters since January 16.
A council spokeswoman said the authority was still dealing with certain pedestrian areas but said a rise in temperatures in recent days had thawed laying snow.
She said: "We continue to monitor areas where this is likely to cause a hazard, as it may turn to ice.
"Our winter operations are still ongoing with monitoring and carrying out further treatments where necessary."
