Scott Co. road crews tired of winter, but still ready for next round

SCOTT COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - As more winter weather moves in, road crews in Scott County tell us they're ready to hit the streets again. They say it's been a tiring winter.

"This ice is a road department's worst nightmare," says J.R. Brandenburg with the Scott County Roads Department. "I'm ready to talk about sunshine and mowing grass."

But, right now, Brandenburg can't look that far ahead.

"So far we've gone out 20 time spreading salt and a lot of all-nighters. The fatigue and overtime, everybody gets tired of it this time of year."

They'll put that aside and load up for yet another round.

"We know this part of our job keeping the road safe," he says.

The salt supply isn't a concern for the county, they have plenty.
