Scott Co. road crews stay ahead of first winter blast

Georgetown, Ky. (WKYT) - As the snow came down early Saturday morning, the Scott County Road Department fired up their trucks and set out.

Director of Roads & Maintenance J.R. Brandenburg, said his team started preparing for slick conditions Friday. Despite a few minor break downs, things went well for his crews Saturday morning.

"That's a big part of our job, to keep the county clean and safe for everybody and that's what we do," Brandenburg said.

Norman and Laura Shimko are headed home to Madison, OH from west central Florida. WKYT caught up with them at a Georgetown rest area. While driving through Kentucky, the couple said they saw a few slide offs, but no accidents.

"The high speed lanes look a lot wetter. I am trying to avoid the very left lane because I don't know if it is going to be water or ice when I get there," Norman Shimko explained.

Brandenburg said he will be keeping a close eye on the radar tonight and his crews will react to whatever happens overnight. He also wants to remind everyone that when you see a plow truck, drive a little bit slower.
