Road Conditions Improving in Western Kentucky
Western Kentucky roadways are improving as crews continue to clear pavement with plows and salt, though some ramps and “C” snow priority routes remained covered.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is using six borrowed snow plow crews from Hopkins and Muhlenberg counties to attack a stubborn buildup of ice and snow on Interstate 24 in Christian County. Many of the fifteen reported crashes on I-24 between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning are attributed to motorists using snow packed passing lanes.
Elsewhere in the region, Fulton, Graves and Calloway counties continue to deal with unusually heavy ice buildup.
