Pulaski Co. crews prepare for winter storm

PULASKI COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - As winter weather approaches Southern Kentucky, Pulaski County road crews are preparing for the snow.

Road crews across Southern Kentucky worked to fill the last of their trucks with salt in preparation for whatever this weekend's winter weather maker brings.

It's already been a busy start to the season with snow and ice in November, according to Amber Hale of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. Hale has already highlighted the problem areas in the district.

"The hills, the coveted areas, that's our biggest issues, of course bridges and overpasses always," Hale said.

Across all ten counties in District 8, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has more than 80 snow plows ready to cover the roughly 5,200 miles of roads. The backup plan if conditions get too bad is Frankfort.

"Out of Frankfort, they have an arsenal on standby in case something happens and particular areas of the state needs extra pieces of equipment and crew members," Hale said.

Hale wants drivers to remember that crews start with major roadways first before more rural routes so extra caution should be taken.
