Transportation Crews Continue Clearing Roadways

ktc snow1 300FRANKFORT, Ky. (12/26/12) – Kentucky Transportation Cabinet highway crews continue plowing and treating roads as more personnel stand by to combat winter weather this evening.
 
Crews are working over much of the state this afternoon, particularly in northern and western Kentucky. In these areas, crews are plowing and treating roadways.
 
Some primary routes in western Kentucky are reported to be partially covered with snow. Blowing snow in the region is drifting in several locations.
 
Snow and sleet are reported in northern Kentucky. Roads in that area remain slick and hazardous.
 
The Cabinet reminds motorists:
 
• Exercise greater caution when driving. Slow down!
• Be prepared for slick conditions.
• Give a wide berth to snow plows and other heavy highway equipment.
• Eliminate distractions while behind the wheel.
 
Condition reports on major routes are available by calling 511 or logging onto the 511 travel and traffic information website at www.511.ky.gov. Road conditions are described in the following manner:
 
Wet Pavement – The roadway is wet. Ice could form as temperatures drop.
 
Partly Covered – The roadway is partly covered with snow, slush or ice. Markings may be obscured.
 
Mostly Covered – The roadway is mostly covered with snow, slush or ice. Roadway markers may be difficult to see because of packed snow and rutting conditions.
 
Completely Covered – The roadway is completely covered with snow, slush or ice and markings are obscured.
 
Impassable – Roadway conditions are not suitable for travel unless required by an emergency.
 
The cabinet’s SAFE Patrol is available to assist motorists whose vehicles become disabled on Kentucky interstates and parkways. For SAFE Patrol assistance, call 511 or toll-free at 1-877-FOR-KYTC (1-877-367-5982.)
