Snow & ice crews out in Hart/LaRue/Green/Taylor/Marion Counties. Great progress is being made, but worry is that zero traction ice may be unavoidable with daytime thawing, nighttime freezing.
District 4 Elizabethtown, KY - Breckinridge, Grayson, Green, Hardin, Hart, LaRue, Marion, Meade, Nelson, Taylor, & Washington Counties

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, District 4, Elizabethtown, KY
ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (9amCT/10amET, Mon 25 Jan 2016) - Hart/LaRue/Green/Taylor/Marion Counties - Snow and ice crews are continuing to plow secondary routes. Many roads are topped with compacted snow and ice, making it difficult for plows to "bite" down to pavement. With sunshine, warming temperatures and chemical treatments, these areas should begin to break up today and allow plowing to be more effective. We are also using additional grader equipment today on certain roads. Primary routes in these counties are in much better shape following a full day of sunshine on Sunday.
Remainder of District 4 Counties - Snow and ice crews are spot treating shaded areas and drifts. Most state maintained routes are in good shape.
As temperatures climb into the 40s and rain showers develop later today and tonight, there are additional concerns heading into Tuesday morning. Even with plowing and treatment, secondary roads in our southern and eastern counties may not be completely cleared. Rain showers can make ice patches on roads extremely slick. Wet ice patches can create near zero traction conditions and motorists should be prepared.
Residents clearing driveways and entrances in all counties are reminded not to push snow into roads. This is a significant driving hazard and can require spot treatments from crews that need to be concentrating on snow and ice removal elsewhere.
District 4 is comprised of Breckinridge, Grayson, Green, Hardin, Hart, LaRue, Meade, Marion, Nelson, Taylor and Washington counties.
