LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The main roads in Lexington are clear, but side streets are a different story. The streets and roads department clears the most popular roads first.

"It's prioritized by the amount of traffic, the size of the road, school bus routes are a priority, roads near hospitals and things like that," said Rob Allen, Lexington's acting deputy director of streets and roads.

Those types of roads were cleared Wednesday. Thursday, workers moved on to the next part of their snow plan.

"We are still trying to work on the secondary roads, both in the rural areas and the neighborhoods," said Allen.

Allen says the sunshine on Thursday helped out them out, raising the ground temperature, allowing their treatment to work effectively.

"Hopefully, we can get those secondary roads open so people can go about their business," explained Allen.

The department is on standby until 8 a.m. Friday.
