Road crews brace for winter wallop

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) – Road crews say 8 p.m. on Tuesday looks like the time when things could get bad on the roads.
They've got more than 5,000 tons of salt waiting to be used at a moment's notice.
Rain put a damper on city road crews Monday who were out trying to pre-treat Lexington streets.
They had to press pause today.
About half of the city's nearly 50 salt trucks will be ready for whatever Mother Nature has in store.
The city also has a request for drivers if you're out and about.
"Folks need to give them some room, give them plenty of room to turn, not follow too closely and slow down for road conditions,” said Rob Allen, with the LFUCG.
As you're driving you'll want to especially look out for black ice, which can form very quickly along bridges and overpasses.
