KYTC prepares for snow

Highway crews in Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 2 are prepared to respond to an area of light snow that is expected to move across the 11 county region on Thursday morning.

While accumulations are expected to be minimal, weather conditions created the possibility of icing of bridges and overpasses.

Crews plan to report at 6:00 a.m., Thursday, and may be called in earlier, if required.

Crews expect to initially focus on treating bridges, overpasses and potential trouble spots. As temperatures and weather conditions allow, crews may move to pre-treating roadways to prepare for humidity and temperatures overnight Thursday into Friday that may be conducive for formation of road frost or black ice.

Motorists should be prepared to adjust driving speeds to meet localized weather conditions as the snow moves through on Thursday. Extra caution will also be required during the overnight hours Thursday.
