Highway crews in northeast Kentucky prepare for winter storm
Plows, crews now on 12-hour shifts
FLEMINGSBURG, Ky. (Dec. 6, 2013) – State snow plow crews in northeast Kentucky will stay after hours today and a second shift will come in at midnight to battle winter precipitation that’s advancing across the region.
In most Kentucky Department of Highways District 9 counties – Bath, Boyd, Carter, Elliott, Fleming, Greenup, Lewis, Mason, Nicholas and Rowan – plow and salt trucks are staged at indoor facilities. As rain turns to ice and snow, each fleet will deploy to keep roadways clear. Crews will remain on 12-hour duty shifts in all counties until the storm threat subsides.

Crews and contractors in District 9 use more than 75 snow plows and have about 24,000 tons of salt stockpiled to battle winter precipitation. Statewide, more than 2,000 employees and 1,000 snow plows, along with 320,000 tons of salt, are available during winter operations. You can learn more about snow removal efforts online at
