Roads continue to improve with increasing temperatures
FRANKFORT, Ky. (March 4, 2014) – Kentucky Transportation Cabinet highway crews continue extensive snow and ice operations today across the Commonwealth.
Most priority A routes including interstates and parkways are clear. Many B and C routes throughout the Commonwealth remain partly or completely covered. Crews have worked around the clock to keep routes passable.
Motorists should expect some slick spots and black ice on cleared priority routes.
The cabinet reminds motorists to:
· Exercise greater caution when driving. Slow down.
· Be prepared for slick conditions.
· Give a wide berth to snow plows and other heavy highway equipment.
· Eliminate distractions while behind the wheel.
Condition reports on major routes are available by calling 511 or by logging onto the 511 traffic and travel information website, 511.ky.gov.
