SOMERSET, KY - (Mon 25 Jan 2016 at 12pmCT/1pmET) - Highway crews continue plowing and treating roadways and in all ten District 8 counties. Crews still remain focused on clearing A and B priority routes reporting that A routes still have areas that remain covered.


Additional contract crews equipped with skid steers and graders have been called in to assist counties in clearing roadways. With the amount of ice that blanketed the pavement followed by the large amount of snowfall these pieces of equipment are our best resource at clearing our roadways. The help of rising temperatures and the sunshine today will also assist our crews as they work to clear as many roads as possible.

Motorist are reminded that most roadways still have hazardous conditions on them, especially at intersections.

Dial 511 or go online at www.511.ky.gov for the latest traffic and travel information in the Commonwealth.

KYTC District 8 serves Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Lincoln, McCreary, Pulaski, Rockcastle, Russell and Wayne Counties.
