Snow Showers Have Plows Out in Northeast KY

By  | 

Snowplows are operating in northeast Kentucky as snow showers move across the region.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet said early Friday that that highway crews were treating slick spots in Mason, Bath, Rowan and Elliott counties. They were on standby for being dispatched in Greenup, Lewis, Boyd, Fleming, Carter and Nicholas counties.

The department has 75 snowplows in District 9 and has stockpiled 23,000 tons of salt.

Officials caution driver not to pass snowplows, saying the drivers will pull over periodically to let traffic pass.

Meanwhile snow flurries and freezing temperatures led to several crashes on roadways in central Kentucky. Local media reported slick roads were to blame for numerous accidents reported in the Lexington and Louisville areas.
