Transportation Cabinet Crews Working To Combat Ice

FRANKFORT, Ky. - Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) crews are working to combat a band of winter precipitation that is crossing the commonwealth today. Crews are actively treating roads in the western two-thirds of the state and are on alert or pretreating roads in the eastern portions of Kentucky.

KYTC crews have been pretreating roads over much of Kentucky since Tuesday in anticipation of this weather maker.

"The Transportation Cabinet is working to minimize the impact of today's weather as much as possible," said Transportation Secretary Joe Prather. "We encourage residents in the affected areas to limit travel as much as possible and exercise caution at all times as our crews work to keep roads clear."

Residents should stay tuned to local media for the latest roadway and weather information. Statewide traffic and weather information is also available at www.511.ky.gov.
