Road crews continue plowing, brace for another winter storm
By Amber Hale
Somerset, KY - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) District 8 crews continue to clear icy highways this morning as they brace for another winter storm expected to move into the area later today.
Road conditions vary county to county this morning. While main priority A routes such as I-75 and the Cumberland Parkway have clearer travel lanes, many A routes remain partly covered in areas. Priority B and C routes remain mostly to completely covered across the district.
Because low temperatures make salt treatments ineffective, crews remained focused overnight on plowing operations primarily on priority A routes. As main routes are cleared crews will begin to address B and C routes. Crews were able to make some progress yesterday reaching pavement in some areas, however refreezing overnight has likely created slick spots along those routes.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning that goes in effect for the entire District 8 region this evening. Additional snow and wintry precipitation is expected to impact the area later today through Friday morning.
Additional snow and ice information including a complete list of priority routes can be found by visiting http://snowky.ky.gov.
