Snow creating tricky travel conditions in northern Kentucky

The farther north you travel Tuesday, the more snow you're expected to see.

Several inches could fall in northern Kentucky before the storm finally moves out.

Grant County even declared a level one snow emergency.

Judge Executive Darrell Link says a slippery commute into work today prompted his decision to issue the emergency warning to drivers, urging everyone to use caution in the county.

The level one designation also gives the county power to tow vehicles parked in the streets and roads if they are in the path of the snow plows.

Link says the county is responsible for plowing more than 270 miles of streets and roads.

Officials with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet say they've been working hard to keep traffic on Interstate 75 running smoothly.

State transportation officials say the snow started falling in northern Kentucky around 6:30 a.m.

Crews were already parked on the side of the road, waiting for the snow to fall.

We're told the state has 123 plows to cover 11 northern Kentucky counties.

Drivers say as long as they stay alert, the roads are manageable. They also suggest taking your time.
