Ky. Road Crews Prepare for More Winter Weather Tuesday

Feb 3, 2014

Interstates, parkways and U.S. highways are improving today, but a Kentucky highway official says other roads are in “pretty rough shape.”

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spokesman Keith Todd said crews are working hard to clear roads in anticipation of another round of freezing rain and sleet Tuesday. He said the National Weather Service is calling for precipitation to begin at noon, continuing until 8 p.m.

“The big item there is going to be where the freeze line falls,” Todd said. “We’re going to be getting freezing rain and sleet to the north and then we’re going to be getting rain to the south. It’s kind of one of those cases where either way it’s not going to be good.”

Todd said if there’s too much rain, the snow would melt causing flooding. He said the weather service says they will have another model run of tomorrow’s weather prepared by 3 p.m. Monday and a plan of action will be drawn up then.
