Road Crews hard at work

Daviess, Henderson, Union, and Webster county highway crews have been treating roads since early this morning.

"All of our crews reported at 6 am this morning so other counties are spot treating as needed," said Keith Todd with KYTC.  "Ohio County is only spot treating due to only small accumulation of spotty snow."
Air temperatures were reportes at around 29 to 30 degrees at most locations. Road surface temperatures are running right at 32 degrees across the northern portion of the district, so any snow that falls will likely stick to roadways until ambient air temps rise above the freezing mark.
"Motorists are asked to do their part by slowing down and using appropriate caution," said Todd. "While there may be minimal accumulation, there is still a potential for hazardous driving conditions, particularly on bridges and overpasses."
As the snow moves out today, crews will transition to pre-treating to prepare for humidity and cold conditions overnight that will be conducive to the formation of road frost or black ice.
Motorists are asked to use caution when they encounter trucks going about snowfighting activities.
