KYTC District 8 crews preparing for winter weather event
By Amber Hale
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) District 8 highway crews are ready to respond to the winter storm expected to move across the state on Thursday.
The U.S. National Weather Service out of Louisville has issued a winter storm warning for all ten counties in District 8, which includes Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Lincoln, McCreary, Pulaski, Rockcastle, Russell and Wayne counties. Weather forecasts are calling for snow accumulations of 4" - 6" across the region. Motorists should expect hazardous travel conditions, especially during the Thursday evening commute.
The following measures will help keep motorists safe and prepared:
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) mission is to keep traffic moving in a safe manner with an emphasis on maintaining mobility along critical corridors and priority routes. When bad weather hits, crews are assigned 12-hour shifts to plow and treat roads using 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.
The Cabinet's snow and ice information website, http://snowky.ky.gov, provides details about priority routes, helpful winter weather tips, fact sheets and videos on salt application and snow removal.
In addition, the public can monitor winter operations in real time on the state's interactive traffic system - GoKY.ky.gov - to find out what's happening on state routes in their local counties.
You are an important part! Safe travel begins with YOU! Be prepared.
