Road work will continue through the night, salting not an option

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (Feb. 16, 2021) Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) District 3 Crews will be continuing operations through the overnight hours though strategy will shift.

Because temperatures are expected to be near the single digits, salting will not be an option. However, crews will be focusing on clearing shoulders and intersections by plowing. Some of the smaller counties will keep a skeleton crew in to work on equipment.

Additional information is available here

Lots of headway was made on priority A and B routes in most counties as crews continue to work around the clock in shifts to clear roads. Interstates, parkways and U.S. Routes have clear travel lanes. Priority B routes have been plowed and salted. Motorists should be warned that wet roads from today could refreeze overnight creating slick spots.

The District 3 snow & ice operations team is monitoring a possible incoming weather system that could drop more snow in the area Wednesday and Thursday. More information will be available as the forecast become more accurate.

The District 3 social media accounts will have information on conditions in each county in the District posted throughout the winter storm. District 3 is on Twitter at KYTCDistrict3 and on Facebook at KYTCDistrict3.
