COVINGTON, Ky. -- The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 6 announced late Thursday that its road crews were preparing for winter weather that’s expected to invade the Tri-State.
Both state and contracted trucks are reporting in to work by 7 a.m. Friday and will be mobilized ahead of the snowfall, according to the KTYC.
The KTYC also announced Thursday that several District 6 crews were already on the road pre-treating some priority routes.
District 6 currently has 25,000 tons of salt on hand in its storage domes located at the state maintenance facilities and 124 state and contracted trucks available for this snow event.
To help assure that its workers can treat roads quickly, the KYTC is asking motorists to help its efforts by giving its salt trucks space so workers can do their jobs.
As KYTC has also provided a series of tips for driving in snow and ice:
