SOMERSET, KY - (Mon 25 Jan 2016 at 5amCT/6amET) - After being able to clear many Priority A routes yesterday, low temperatures and freezing fog has caused water left on the roadways that were clear to freeze overnight. This has created icy patches, some of them large, that could be hard to see for motorists. Also patches of coverage still remain on some priority A routes.


Salting operations were halted last night due to the frigid temperatures, but plowing operations continued. Crews were able to begin plowing Priority B routes yesterday and will continue to do so today. Temperatures are predicted to be above freezing today with sunshine which will be a tremendous help to clearing roadways. As temperatures begin to rise, salting operations will resume. As the ice and snow left on the roadways begin to melt throughout the day slushy conditions can be expected along with water on the roadways.

Most roadways still have hazardous conditions on them, especially at intersections. Crews will continuing working around the clock in shifts to get the roads cleared.
