Snow Causes Traffic Troubles

The snow made for slow going on Central Kentucky roadways early Wednesday morning.

In Lexington, southbound I-75 was shutdown for a few minutes at the 107 milemarker, south of Man O'War, because police had to respond to so many accidents.

Also in Fayette County, Russell Cave Road was shutdown at Ironworks Pike due to large snow drifts.

A crash at the 11 milemarker on I-75 brought traffic to a standstill. A couple, traveling from Michigan to Florida, hit a patch of black ice on an overpass, and the trailer they were hauling, overturned.

By noon, road crews had the interstates around Lexington clear, primarily treating trouble spots.

The situation was the same Wednesday afternoon within the city. Road crews have been working around the clock, salting the roads and moving debris.
