KYTC: Most routes still covered or partially covered

By Wes Watt

Bowling Green, KY - Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) District 3 crews battled another wave of winter weather that moved into the area last night. Crews from each District 3 county reported an estimated two to four inches of fresh snow overnight. The new fallen snow recovered roads that were clear after two earlier waves of winter weather.

Crews worked through the night and continue to work this morning. Motorists should expect most routes to be covered or partially covered depending on area. Interstate 65 has the right lane pretty clear and the middle lane is expected to be clear soon. Ramps are partially clear with ice spots. Interstate 165 has all four lanes nearly cleared with ramps partially cleared.

Crews began making progress once the snowfall rate slowed down. The focus continues to be mainly priority A routes with some priority B routes being plowed.

It is expected once the sun comes up progress will pick up even further. If motorists have to be out it is advised they adjust driving behavior, slow down and leave plenty of space between vehicles.
