Scott County road crews ready for snow

GEORGETOWN, Ky. (WKYT) - Despite the holiday, some road crews around Kentucky spent New Year's Day preparing for snow, which is in the forecast for Thursday.

Road crews in Scott County say they actually started preparing for the snow days ago.

They say they've already used as much salt this winter, as they did all of last winter.

"Each round we run is about 150 tons," Scott County Director of Roads J.R. Brandenburg said. "I think we ran five times last year and so far this year we've ran six times and it's only the first of the year."

Brandenburg says every time crews treat the roads in Scott County, it costs around $14,000.

Officials with Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 7 say state road crews in Fayette, Anderson, Scott, and Woodford Counties will report to work at 5 a.m. Thursday to begin treating roads, if necessary.
