KYTC crews deploying Sunday morning for anti-icing operations
By Wes Watt
Bowling Green, KY - The snow & ice operations team for Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 3--which serves counties including Barren, Edmonson, Metcalfe, Monroe, and Warren Counties--has ordered anti-icing operations to begin Sunday morning in preparation of a possible winter weather system moving through the area beginning Sunday night. Trucks will be putting down brine on major routes and motorists are asked to give the anti-icing vehicles plenty of space.
Brine is a mixture of salt, water and liquid calcium that coats the roadway which lowers the freezing temperatures of the road. Anti-icing can prolong the time it takes for ice to form on the roadway giving extra time for salt trucks to put out salt.
The National Weather Service out of Louisville has put the entire District 3 area under a winter storm watch from Sunday night through Tuesday. Total snow accumulations could be up to four inches along with some ice. Temperatures are expected to remain below freezing in each county in the District for the duration of the Winter Weather System.
The District 3 counties to the west and north are expected to be hit the earliest and hardest. Those counties include Butler, Edmonson, Logan and Todd. As of now, all counties in the District 3 area are expected to be impacted. The District 3 snow & ice operations team will continue to monitor the forecast throughout the weekend. Crews from each county are ready to be called to begin to treat roads if needed.
