Scott County road crews out in full force

GEORGETOWN, Ky. (WKYT) - Road crews across the Bluegrass have been keeping an eye on the snow and plan to work throughout the night to keep drivers safe.

Snow began falling Friday night in Georgetown just before 8 p.m.

Director of Scott County roads, J.R. Brandenburg, says he'll call in 12 guys and get all of his trucks out on the roads.

"We've got 10 large trucks, two small pickups with blades, and spreaders, and in four hours we can cover the entire county," Brandenburg said.

They've got 4,000 tons of salt in storage, much more than they will even need this entire winter season.

Brandenburg says he wishes the snow and ice would have held off until after the holidays, but his crews are prepared no matter when it decides to really come down.

Fayette County decided to bring in a full crew at midnight to treat the roads.
