LEXINGTON, Ky. (3/5/13) – City crews from the divisions of Streets and Roads and Water Quality will be on duty Tuesday night beginning at 8 p.m. to prepare for a winter storm that could drop up to four inches of snow on Lexington, according to weather forecasts.
Sam Williams, director of Streets and Roads, said early rains are expected to turn to snow about 10 p.m., with the heaviest snowfall expected after midnight.
Temperatures are expected to be about 30 degrees by daylight, he said.
“We will have crews out monitoring the situation Tuesday night,” Williams said, “and our intent is to have things pretty much under control by work time on Wednesday morning.”
Citizens can call the Traffic Hotline through the city’s Traffic Management Center at 258-3611 to hear traffic updates or check local road conditions. The public can get information on accidents, lane blockages, snow and ice trouble spots and road closures through Twitter (@lexwrecks) or through the Crosstown Traffic Show. The show broadcasts live from 6:30-8:30 a.m. weekday mornings on cable GTV3.
