Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, District 8, Somerset, KY
SOMERSET, KY (Fri 12 Jan 2018) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) District 8 highway crews are prepared to respond to another round of winter weather set to impact the area this afternoon and last into the day Saturday.
KYTC District 8 staff is currently monitoring weather conditions and road crews will remain on duty beyond their normal 4:30pm local ending time this afternoon. Trucks will be mobilized prior to the wintry mix reaching our area and will start salting the pavement. Crews are prepared to work through the overnight hours to keep roads in the best possible condition during winter weather.
Motorists should be mindful of the potential for slick spots on the roadway as rain changes over to sleet or freezing rain. Drivers should reduce their speed and increase their follow distance.
Currently, the KYTC District 8 facilities combined have approximately 20,000 tons of salt on hand and 66,000 gallons of liquid calcium chloride.
Snow removal is based on a priority system based on the amount and nature of traffic within each individual county. Priority A routes include major through routes and are those most heavily traveled. Priority B routes include other important, but lesser traveled, state routes. Other roads fall into Priority C. To view the priority routes for snow removal, visit http://snowky.ky.gov. District 8 personnel have the responsibility for clearing more than 5,192 single lane miles of state-maintained highways in the counties of Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Lincoln, McCreary, Pulaski, Rockcastle, Russell and Wayne.
KYTC encourages motorists to prepare for winter and remain safe by following these tips:
