Road Crews Hard at Work in Bowling Green

winter weather warning road 300BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (3/3/14) — Warren County road crews were out early today in an effort to clear rural roads.

Jerry Young, county roads supervisor, said dump trucks fitted with snowplows are hitting county roads to push snow and sleet out of the way. However, he is advising people who don’t have to be on the road to stay put.

“People might find themselves off in a ditch or becoming part of a multi-car wreck,” said Young.

County road truck drivers are using care in getting to areas where ice may cause the greatest hazards, such as steep hills and busy or hidden intersections. The trucks will distribute ice-melting salt, but that salt won’t begin to work until temperatures rise above 26 degrees (F).

“The most important things any driver can do to prevent accidents, sometimes, is to decide NOT to drive,” said Young, noting that area schools are closed.

The Warren County Sheriff’s Department is already busy assisting motorists in multiple single-vehicle traffic accidents or issues where vehicles have become stranded after veering off icy roadways.

Young said if people must ravel that they should particularly watch bridges and overpasses, which typically freeze before the roadways.
