Decrease in temperatures minimizes salt

Murray, KY – Kentucky State Police say most main roads in the region are now clear. Side roads are still snowy and slushy, but overall they are moderately safe. Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Public Information Officer Keith Todd says tonight's impending low temperatures could change things considerably.

"Our salt and other ice-fighting chemicals have sort of a reduced impact. So we have the potential for some refreezing on some road ways overnight tonight. So anybody that's going to be out, particularly during the late evening hours, need to be aware of those hazards."
