Fleming Co. prepares for another round of winter weather

FLEMING COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Crews with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet in Fleming County had a brief break from the snow, they used it to prepare for the next set of winter weather.

They had up to 10 inches of snow during the last winter storm. Crews made sure roads were clear to prevent new precipitation from mixing with what was already there.

"We are not really worried about it impacting the roads as far as piling up on already existing snow, " said Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Spokesman Allen Blair.

Workers also spent Tuesday performing maintenance on their equipment.

The department covers 2,000 miles in Northeastern Kentucky.

"It's been a very busy January as far as the number of storms," explained Blair.

Officials will be well equipped with salt. About half of their supply remains, roughly 10,000 tons, enough to last the rest of the winter.

Roads will be slick. Crews ask drivers to stay home unless they need to be out. It'll help them do their job more efficiently.

They will work 12 hour shifts Tuesday night and Wednesday.
