Some Lexington side roads still covered in snow

As Fayette County road crews work to clear the main streets into and out of the city, they know they still have a lot of side roads to cover.

For residents living on streets still covered in snow, this winter has been a challenge.

"They take care of the main highway first for the ambulances and other vehicles. Hopefully they get to the side streets soon," said Harrison Burrus, who lives off of Georgetown Street.

Officials with the Streets and Roads department say they had budgeted $500,000 for de-icing chemicals this winter.

Because of the rising cost of salt ,and the extended periods of cold, they say they've spent over $700,000 this winter ,and they could still spend more.
