kytranscab-snow copyFRANKFORT, Ky. (1/16/13) – Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) crews continue to be out treating roadways in several counties of Western Kentucky.
 
At this hour, crews continue to focus mainly on bridges and overpasses which have continued to create slick spots. KYTC also had some reports of persistent icing on hilltops where the wind has cooled down pavement temperatures overnight.
 
Motorists are urged to continue to use appropriate caution. In some cases road surfaces have been cleared to wet pavement, giving drivers are feeling of overconfidence. They then pop over a hill or onto a bridge or curve where there is some residual icing and get into trouble. These icy spots are likely to continue until temperatures are well above the freezing mark this morning. To put it simply, warmer temperatures are our friend.
 
We’ve continued to have a number of crashes reported at bridges and overpasses along the Purchase Parkway in southern Graves County. There have also been some accidents along US 45 in southern McCracken County.
 
Trucks are continuing to patrol and salt these areas, as well as treating bridges and overpasses in most counties.
 
Many side roads are still snow and ice covered. Motorists are advised to use caution anytime they approach a stop sign. We’ve had a few reports of people sliding into intersections and getting hit by cross-traffic.
