Road crews are still out across eastern Kentucky.
The snow is slowing, and frigid temperatures could freeze roads. Route 122 in Floyd County is already solid ice, but snow plow drivers are trying to melt and clear the ice.
Each garage has tons of salt, and thousands of gallons of liquid calcium chloride. However, it is only the beginning of January, and crews are already out regularly treating the roads.
Snow plow drivers say when it is only snow, it is easier because you can just push it around. The problem is when there are freezing temperatures, below 25 degrees at least.
In these conditions, the salt is not as effective. So drivers are using gallons of calcium chloride to melt the ice. But as ice starts to form on highways, crews are doing everything they can to keep cars on the road.
Some garages have already used more supplies than usual. The highway departments in Jackson and Pikeville, and both say they have more orders on the way of liquid calcium chloride.
