Frankfort digs out, KSU closed Monday

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) – Frankfort had to dig out of this latest round of winter weather.

Kentucky State University even cancelled classes for the day.

"Frankfort never gets snow like this," said Gloria Dorsey. "It's always Lexington and Louisville. I'm so happy we have it."

Slushy, wet remnants were left behind Monday after Sunday night's sleet and snow in Woodford and Franklin Counties.

It caused a lot of travel trouble for drivers along I-64.

Kentucky State Police said sleet initially caused the problems.

Monday morning it was a combination of that with snow.

What started out as a nightmare on the roads for drivers made for a sloppy trek around town for some folks who had to walk to get where they were going Monday morning.

"I almost fell several times," said Teresa Hudson. "I was laughing as I was going. My feet are cold."

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has spent more than $27 million on snow and ice removal so far this winter.

The state has more than 150,000 tons salt on hand to deal with any more winter events.
