Road crews are preparing for what old man winter may bring Friday night and Saturday morning.
Workers with Lexington's Streets and Roads Division began pre-treating roads Friday morning in expectation of a winter storm that could bring several inches of snow to some parts of the state.
When it comes to snow removal, Lexington officials have a priority plan in place with first priority routes being major arteries in and out of the city, such as Main Street and Nicholasville Road. Priority two streets are major connecting streets, such as Red Mile Road and Loudon Avenue. Priority three streets are school bus routes. Priority four include streets into and out of subdivisions.
To create even more of a potential hassle, the Saturday before Christmas is typically the busiest shopping day of the year, meaning a lot of people could be out on snow covered roads Saturday morning.
