Transportation center preparing for winter weather

In Frankfort, state crews are keeping a close eye on the weather situation and even looking closely at the traffic on highways.

State officials are are able to monitor movement on several highways throughout the state inside of the Transportation Operation Center, or TOC. They have several cameras set up on roads across the state that they are able to view.

The rain has created some delays for that process of treating the roads. Because of that, state crews are anticipating some rush hour problems. They are asking people to drive with extreme caution.

State crews will be working around the clock to keep things as safe as possible out on the roads.

"We'll have a staffing here in the TOC that will be communicating with our districts to have an update on the road status, the weather that is going on, what our crews are doing to the roadways. We'll be in constant communication with them through the event," said Michael Williams, the state snow and ice coordinator with TOC.

State crews will be making bridges and overpasses the top priority, as they will be the first places to freeze.

State snow removal crews say they have trucks loaded with salt and will respond to slick areas as needed.
