More snow expected tonight
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Feb. 17, 2015) — Road crews will continue to work 12-hour shifts tonight and into Wednesday to maintain passable roadways throughout the state.
Sun and temperatures in the 20s helped crews on Tuesday clear most roadways.
Some roads remain snow-covered with a few slick spots, particularly in shaded areas, but most are passable. As crews finish the first round, many are gearing up for a second, lighter round of snow expected to make its way through the state beginning tonight and into Wednesday. The National Weather Service cautions that the additional snow may create slick conditions all over again.
Gov. Steve Beshear on Monday declared a statewide emergency because of the storm, which blanketed the Bluegrass State with up to a foot of snow.
Snow removal efforts have been focused on the interstates and other major routes. Secondary and rural roads will be salted and plowed once main routes have been cleared.
